I'm running RANCID on Ubuntu 10.10 server and it's collecting configs from every one of my devices and properly committing to CVS... for all but one device. I have a Cisco 2901 that always end with the following error and is still listed as a new router in CVSWEB. Here's the error output.

Trying to get all of the configs.
losangeles2901-ucrtr-01.pop.local clogin error: Error: TIMEOUT reached
losangeles2901-ucrtr-01.pop.local: missed cmd(s): dir /all slavedisk2:,show rsp chassis-info,dir /all sec-slot2:,show diag,dir /all disk1:,show gsr chassis,dir /all sec-nvram:,show diag ch$
losangeles2901-ucrtr-01.pop.local: End of run not found

I have done all the trouble shooting as outlined in the FAQ under section 3) General located at http://www.shrubbery.net/rancid/FAQ
Every single troubleshooting item works as it should. I have verified that the device's entry in router.db is correct and that I can resolve the hostname.  I modified the .cloginrc to add the autoenable directive for my two 2901s. One works, the other does not. Can I have more than one autoenable directive? I've seen it like this in documentation and discussions: add autoenable *{1}  but then how are routers that do not get autoenabled get treated?

My .cloginrc looks like this:

add user * {username}
add password * {password} {password}
add autoenable denver2901-ucrtr-01 {1}
add autoenable losangeles2901-ucrtr-01 {1}

Please help! Can anyone tell me where to go next?
