If you enable a Warning Banner on the Site object, a special warning statement appears every time an unauthorized user attempts to log on to the SMP UI from an ADX, ADS, OAS, or NAE8500 server and all their child devices.

To configure this setting, complete the following steps:
  1. In the SMP UI of the Site Director, display the site object, click the Site View tab, click the Advanced button in the top right and then click Edit.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the window to locate the Warning Banner attribute.
  3. From the Warning Banner list, select one of the following options:
    • None
    • U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) Warning Banner
    • U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Warning Banner
    • U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Warning Banner
    Note: None is selected by default.
  4. Click Save. The setting takes from three to five minutes to become effective.
When you enable a warning banner, it appears for all local and Active Directory users when they log on to the SMP UI. The user must click OK or I agree to proceed.
Note: The login page has a timeout of 30 seconds to put in your user name and password. After 30 seconds the page displays the selected Warning Banner.

The Metasys audit log presents any changes to the warning banners and the user who makes the change.

Note: Warning banners do not appear when you log on to SCT.
