If /etc/motd file doesn't exist.

Then..
#cd /etc
#touch motd
#vi /etc/motd
(add your msg)

Hope it will work.

Hi:

Begin by looking at your login '${HOME}/.profile'.

hi
I think you can put it on .profile.
/etc/motd is also a best place to put login messages.(Message Of The Day)

Also look if there is a file called /etc/issue

Hi,

Did you check /etc/profile?
Also are any other files being sourced from ~/.profile or /etc/profile that could be doing this?

Re: How to get login message

Check /etc/profile for the existing message.

Can you define what you're looking for a little better? If you want to *CHANGE* your login message, then you'd be looking at changing

/etc/motd
/etc/issue
$HOME/.profile
/etc/profile

I notice that you do not state that you've checked this last file.

If you want to *SET* your login message, you'd look at these same four files.
There's no place like 127.0.0.1
