Display message (banner) during Login into Linux machine

There may be cases where you have shared your linux machine password with your colleagues and friends. some times it may require that you want to inform them something about that machine during login. Or you want to welcome them immediately after login into the machine.
 This can be done using a file /etc/motd in linux.
 Open this file, edit it. Add whatever message you want to display during login. 

For example
------------------------------------
NOTE: This machine is used for final
test please do not alter configuration.
 If any queries, please write to
adminuserxyz@blaablaa.com
------------------------------------
