Ubuntu remove SSH welcome message

When you login to an Ubuntu server using SSH, you get welcome message like

Ubuntu welcome message

On most Linux systems, this is generated by /etc/motd. On Ubuntu, MOTD (message of the day) generated dynamically with some scripts. I don’t want to see all the marketing message from Ubuntu everyday.

To disable MOTD on Ubuntu, just delete the scripts from /etc/update-motd.d/

If you want a differnt motd, you can put a shell script in this folder.

Method 2

Another way to disable motd is by disabling pam_motd.so module.
