[rancid] Rancid and Custom Privilege levels

Greetings all.


I am in a situation where I have read-only access to a variety of vendor-managed Cisco routers.


My access-level allows a ‘show running-config’ and a ‘write term’ but for some reason, Rancid is not too happy with accessing these devices.


A clogin test is successful.


The prompt has a #, and for all intents and purposes, it’s enabled.



Here’s the output from the logs:


Trying to get all of the configs.

write(spawn_id=1): broken pipe

    while executing

    invoked from within

"expect {

                -re "¥b+"                       { exp_continue }

    invoked from within
