Provide a Power-On Banner

Although it is not a direct preventative or detective control, a banner can be used for these reasons:

  • To convey ownership.

  • To warn users of the acceptable use of the server.

  • To indicate that access or modifications to OpenBoot parameters is restricted to authorized personnel.

  • Use the following commands to enable a custom warning message.
    {0} ok setenv oem-banner banner-message
    {0} ok setenv oem-banner? true

    The banner message can be up to 68 characters. All printable characters are accepted.
