@jlebon, I think what might be happening is, if you are using
login is the mechanism displaying the MOTD.
login will only look for
/etc/motd by default, or a specified list of paths with
Have been meaning to add the
/etc/motd.d/console-login-helper-messages.motd path with this: https://github.com/coreos/coreos-assembler/issues/244 (though this only solves it for
console-login-helper-messages is relying on something to search
/etc/motd.d and follow the symlink from
/run/console-login-helper-messages/console-login-helper-messages.motd - sshd does this today. The generated MOTD should display after the steps you followed, if logging in using SSH.
Will make a note in the docs of the config required for
login vs. it showing through
sshd by default.
