Cisco Catalyst 6000, 4000, 1900

Hello All,

I cannot get RANCID to get configs on some of our Cisco catalyst switches.

1) Is there anyway to get RANCID to get a config on a 1900?  They have the
menu driven interface and I can't find a way to turn it off.  One can exit
to the command line but I presume RANCID cannot do that.

2) Also, RANCID cannot get configs for our 6000 and 4000 series catalyst's
either.  It can login.  The error message is at the bottom of this
message.  I read what the FAQ says about 6500's and I tried runnning the
cat5rancid file script but it doesn't seem to be getting it still but
maybe I'm not using it right.  The same for the 4000's.  They both have
enable prompts like this: prompt> (enable)

Any help is greatly appreciated.


I didn't think I was running CatOS but here is the version info for the
