DECwindows Documentation, Login Customization?

» close window

The Question is:

With the DECwindows interface we could add a login message (a liability message
 about only using this system for work) by setting DECW$LOGINLOGO to a graphic
 file. This displayed before the user entered anything. With the new desktop,
 this isn't happening
. Is there someway to set the up on the CDE?
And by the way, are there only hardcopies of the CDE manuals mentioned in
 section 1.8.1 of the Getting Started manual? I didn't see these listed
 anywhere in the OpenVMS documentation.

The Answer is :

  Depending on the length of the message, create or update a local
  version of the following file:
  and locate the copy in in:
  and then take a look at the GREETING information in the copy.
  For example, add the following line to the file:
Dtlogin*greeting.labelString: Welcome to %LocalHost% \nUnauthorized Use
of this system is \n Strictly Prohibited.
  No carriage returns or other characters can exist within this text line.
