[rancid] HP Virtual Connect Switches

I've been looking into getting rancid to do backups of HP VirtualConnect
Switches.  Have any of you had any success with these switches or have
seen modified scripts to grab the appropriate information?


The hlogin and the hpuifilter seem to be working fine, but since these
are not "normal switches," what would be the best way to grab the
relevant data once I am at the following prompt:




help           : displays a list of available subcommands

exit           : quits the command shell

<subcommand> ? : displays a list of managed elements for a subcommand

<subcommand> <managed element> ? : displays detailed help for a command




Ideally, I would like to issue a couple of commands such as "show
devicebay" and "show network" and "show uplinkport".  If not those
commands individually, the single command "show all" would be great.
