update-motd

SYNOPSIS
       update-motd

DESCRIPTION
       The PAM MOTD module updates  the  Message-of-the-Day  automatically  on
       user logins.

       But  sometimes,  the  system  administrator may want to update the MOTD
       immediately or on demand.

       This simple program performs the same actions handled by PAM on  login,
       and prints the new MOTD to stdout.

       Note  that  only  the  system  administrator can typically write to the
       MOTD, and thus this utility should be executed as the root user.

       For best practices  and  additional  information,  please  see  update-
       motd(5).
