Mr. Heasley,

Thanks for your reply.  The complete prompt upon logging in is this:

Copyright (C) 1996-2006 Extreme Networks.  All rights reserved.
Protected by U.S Patent Nos 6,678,248; 6,104,700; 6,766,482; 6,618,388; 6,034,957; 6,859,438; 6,912,592; 6,914,905; 5,694,436

Press the <tab> key at any time for completions.
Remember to save your configuration changes.
* 300e48-0.45-HH-IDF:1 #

The * signifies that the config has changed, and if I save the config Rancid is able to go through and grab the config and diff it without any problems.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

> Hi everyone,

Whenever the config is not saved on an Extreme switch and I run rancid-run I only get a bunch of errors in the log and no config is retrieved and diffed. (It appears as if the * that gets put in front of the cli prompt causes this, since that seems to be the only difference between a saved and an unsaved config.)

what is the complete prompt?
