Why login banner disappears upon failed login or after "screen-shield" activation in RHEL7 ?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Login banner disappears after entering incorrect password twice.
  • Login banner works well until the screen shield starts. Once the screen shield rolls down a clock and date display, the banner disappears. It also prompts twice for user name at the time of issue.
