           Summary: Set up a bastion server without banner
           Product: Wikimedia Labs
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Infrastructure
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

If you use ssh to log interactively into an instance, the banner:

| If you are having access problems, please

is perfectly ignorable in between the motds; if you run a command on several
instances (for HOST in tools-{a,b,c}.pmtpa.wmflabs; do ssh $HOST $COMMAND;
done), it becomes very irritating and makes it harder than necessary to see
what the command has actualy done :-).

There are probably lots of ways to set up a second ssh instance on a different
port or a different address or even another physical host, but looking at the
existing bastions' utilization, I think declaring bastion3 (for example) to be
banner-free would be enough.  If someone skipped over the first two bastions,
that should be enough proof that they know what they're doing.
