[rancid] Cisco SB: Disable AAA-I-CONNECT: User CLI session for user cisco over ssh

To clarify, in Cisco IOS and IOS XE:

"no logging console" disables onboard logging messages appearing on the output when you connect to the serial port.  This is a global configuration setting, so it persists across sessions.
"terminal monitor" (and terminal no monitor... note the no is second not first) enables (disables) onboard logging messages appearing on the output when you're on a vty (telnet/ssh).  This is a "exec" mode setting, and only lasts for that vty session.

I can't remember how NX-OX behaves on this point.

And there are some cases where "copy run tftp" might actually cause a logging message.  I believe the "conf t ; archive ; logging" section refers.  Not sure (off the top of my head) if that's just ASA OS though, or if that’s also the behavior in IOS/IOSXE.

    in ios 'term monitor' copies logging to the terminal.  the only sb device
    i have does not have this command, nor the problem.  the only logging
    config i have is
    	no log console
    	logg host nnnn sev deb
    make sure you have the first of those.
