Bug Description

The landscape client motd updater refers to the wrong Landscape server when the host is talking to an LDS instance.

From a host registered with an internal LDS system:

$ landscape-sysinfo | grep Graph
  Graph this data and manage this system at

I believe this should point to the correct URL instead of, there is potential for confusion here.

This occurs on at least both precise and lucid, the example here is from a lucid host with the following version of landscape-client.

$ dpkg-query -W landscape-client
landscape-client 12.05-0ubuntu1.10.04

Please let me know if you need any further information.

This message is generally intended to machines which don't use landscape client just yet. So I'm wondering what the proper thing to do: should we just remove the message if the machine is registered is Landscape? Or do you see value in the message staying there, but pointing to the proper URL?

Either way works for me, as it is its misleading at best as it is. There's probably minor value to leave it in with the correct URL if its possible, but otherwise removing it works too. You'd hope if someone had registered it they know where to find the data, but its a quick way to get to the website if the URL is there.
