Thanks for your comments... as you said I configured switches to skip banner
and menu, the only think I didn't knew is how to disable the menu after
doing a "logout" or "exit" in the CLI, currently that's the only step when I
have to do a "send 'logout\rL'" (by the way, in the login step I was meaning
a Ctrl-Y + C, no Ctrl-Y + L) xD
Another question, I'm trying to capture all the switch configuration
(ERS-5520) using the "show run", but I cannot avoid the "--- More (press
return... ---" pagination, I saw that rancid try to send a "more off"
command before asking for config, but It is a not valid command in ERS-5520
switches, do you know how to tell the switch to skip the pagination issue?
Thanks a lot.
