How to Configure a MOTD Banner for Cisco Switch

Users will be presented with a MOTD (Message of the DAY) banner every time they attempt a connection via the console port, auxiliary port, SSH or a telnet session to Cisco switch. Use the following commands to configure a MOTD message. Here the "#" character is known as a delimiting character.

How to turn off the automatic name resolution for a Cisco Switch

The Cisco switch is set by default to try to resolve any word that is not a command to a DNS server at address 255.255.255.255. We can turn off this by using the following command.

omnisecu.com.sw01>enable
omnisecu.com.sw01#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#no ip domain-lookup
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#exit
omnisecu.com.sw01#

How to assign a Local Name to an IP address

omnisecu.com.sw01>enable
omnisecu.com.sw01#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#ip host PC001 192.168.100.122
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#exit
omnisecu.com.sw01#

How to Turn on synchronous logging

If the Cisco Switch IOS sends a message to the console while you're entering a command, by default the switch will interrupt your work to show the message.

If you want the information sent to console not interrupt the command you are typing, turn on synchronous logging.

omnisecu.com.sw01>enable
omnisecu.com.sw01#configure terminal
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#line console 0
omnisecu.com.sw01(config-line)#logging synchronous
omnisecu.com.sw01(config-line)#exit
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#exit
omnisecu.com.sw01#

Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#line console 0
omnisecu.com.sw01(config-line)#exec-timeout 3 0
omnisecu.com.sw01(config-line)#exit
omnisecu.com.sw01(config)#exit
omnisecu.com.sw01#
