Re: Configure login banner on Mcafee web gateway dashboard and CLI.

For UI: navigate to "Configuration" > "User Interface" > "Login message" and type your test.
Please notice, this text is ONLY shown on Java login screen at the bottom, in HTML GUI it is not shown. I have internally forwarded this to engineering and try to keep this post updated once I have further details.

For CLI: you must use normal Linux procedure (so not a specific McAfee method).

I got it to work with these 3 steps:
1) Login to GUI and navigate to "Configuration" > "File editor" > "sshd_config" and insert a line:
banner /home/banner

2) Login to CLI and create "banner" and edit it with your text:
#vim /home/banner

3) Restart sshd service
#service sshd restart

Then try to relogin and it should look like this:
login as: root
Pre-authentication banner message from server:
| Hello it's Mario!
End of banner message from server
root@<MWGIP>'s password:
