I recently configured password less login for ssh using keys. Before when I logged in with ssh (typing in a password with now keys) it displayed data, updates which are available, CPU usage, RAM usage...

This information is not shown when connecting to the box via ssh since I started using keys.

Does anyone know how to re-enable this feature?

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I have done some more looking around, and it is the "message of the day" which I'm referring to. I'm just trying to figure out how to run this when connecting with ssh. It worked when I connected using a password, since I started using keys it disappeared. –  Gregory Burne Sep 6 '13 at 9:32
Fixed, there was an option in sshd_config which told it not to run. –  Gregory Burne Sep 6 '13 at 9:47
