yeah.. we have a number of 8600s, and mostly 2200s and VHs that need 
collection.  you could capture all the output of a script fumbling 
through the menus, then strip all the evil escape chars, and place the 
information into the repository.. not great, but better than nothing, 
perhaps.  we have a script to gather the information, just not parse it 
into something suitable for the repository at this stage.

Are folks out there using the rivlogin (from 2.3-eft) successfully with 
version 8 software on SSR8600s?
