Here are two ways to customize the AIX login prompt.
The first way is to add a "herald" in the default stanza in the /etc/security/login.cfg file as follows
default: sak_enabled = false logintimes = logindisable = 0 logininterval = 0 loginreenable = 0 logindelay = 0 herald = "Dodgers\r\nID:"
The second method uses the "chsec" command to modify the same file:
chsec -f /etc/security/login.cfg -s default -a herald="Dodgers\r\nID:"
Note: for additional security, I recommend changing
the standard Unix "login" prompt to something else
like "ID". The "login" prompt almost invariably identifies
the system as Unix to hackers.
