    Question MOTD Banner Question

    I currently have a banner configured in sshd_config file.
    I want to disable that banner for one user.
    My goal is to have this banner show before login (or password).
    This is default behavior the way it is set up right now.

    I know if I use /etc/motd file instead and configure .hushlogin on user profile it will work, BUT motd gets displayed after you login.

    Please help.

    So you want a different MOTD for just the one user or no MOTD for them at all?

    The banner in SSH is for everyone and I do not believe it can be configured to skip just one user.
    I guess the question is, is it that important that one user not see the banner when logging in?
    The banner is shown after the user name is typed in and before the password is given.
