Semicolon in Linux logon banner causes banner to be truncated
05-15-2017 01:39 PM
This is something that may be unique. I have two servers, one has Centrify on it and the other doesn't. When you log into the one that is managed by Centrify, the welcome banner which contains a semicolon in the text is truncated at the semicolon.
The banner prints correctly on the server without Centrify.
Has anyone seen this before? Is there a solution out there?

Hi - I have tried to recreate your problem and can't replicate it using 2017 versions of Centrify Direct Control and Centrify SSH
Remember that the displaying of /etc/issue is normally part of the ssh login process as its configurable in sshd_config so it would not be related to CentrifyDC.
Have you tried using strace on a loopback ssh session EG. ssh AD-USER@localhost to track files opened ETC?
Also let us know your versions of CentrifyDC and CentrifySSH
