By | July 14, 2021

Red Hat introduced “Cockpit” starting with version 8 of their operating system. For that matter, they have added a banner at login that suggest how to enable it as followed:

Activate the web console with: systemctl enable –now cockpit.socket

If you have no business using it, you might want to get rid of that banner when you login to the system. You can achieve that using thw following command:

rm -f /etc/issue.d/cockpit.issue /etc/motd.d/cockpit
