How to Edit VB Ubuntu Startup Lines

Hi guys,
Is there any possibilities to Remove or Edit these startup lines in Oracle Virtual Box?
Please help if.


This message is stored in /etc/motd file. Just remove whatever you want to remove from there.

@vjFaLk thank you so much buddy i’ve found that file but i am not able to edit or remove anything because file owner is root,
but i don’t know the root password,
I’ve downloaded erpnext production image from its website.
can you please tell me the default root password?

I’ve successfully changed the text of that file but didn’t remove the old default text, my custom text is appearing after logging in.

After changes my motd file looks like this.

Edit the /etc/issue file as well. That should do it.

Thank you so much, it works.
