[SOLVED] /etc/issue edits


Jan 9, 2019
Harrisburg, PA
Is it safe to edit and customize /etc/issue? I updated the IP address and /etc/hosts file and wanted the console to reflect the changes as well as add our internal DNS name to the host here.

it should reflect the changes you made when you run `pvebanner`

if you want to change the format, `/usr/bin/pvebanner` is the file you want to edit, but you will need to change it with every update again.
