If I can hijack this thread, I think the thread maker meant the greeting message when ssh:ing to b3.

On some distrubutions /etc/motd is a symlink to a file that gets overwritten at reboot, so changing it will not be persistant. Remove the symlink and create a new motd file in it's place, or put whatever information you want to display in motd.tail
