We backup several dozen 2960's without an issue. We are running
rancid-2.3.2a2 if that helps.


Does rancid log in as a priv'd account or are you using an enable
secret?  What priv level did you give your rancid user?  Are you using
anything special for AAA like Tacacs or radius?

Hi All


We have just got some Cisco 2960 switches that we need to backup.
However when the backup runs on the switch, it simply misses the


I think I know why this is, and that is that when I log in with clogin,
it logs in ok, and automatically displays the configuration, rather than
waiting for Rancid to collect it.  This also has problems with paging
int hat when I clogin I see "-more-"at the bottom as though it's waiting
for me to press space or enter, yet, when I press anything, it just sits
there until the connection times out.


Has anyone ever got a 2960 backing up ok? If so, did they experience
this as well?
