In the [greeter] section, it might be interesting to add the parameter

DefaultRemoteWelcome=false

in order to have a custom welcome message for remote logins too

Unfortunately gdmsetup is no longer available. Does anyone know how to implement logon banners in RHEL6.2?

Trust you were not holding your breath, Guy…
for RHEL/CentOS 6.2 do:

1) gconftool-2 –direct –config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory –type boolean –set /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/banner_message_enable 1

2) gconftool-2 –direct –config-source xml:readwrite:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.mandatory –type string –set /apps/gdm/simple-greeter/banner_message_text “####################################################
