Check the login and motd banner.  If there is a '#' in the banner, it will suppress the enable commands and the produce the errors that you are seeing.

This debug sequence has been helpful to me

	sudo login -f rancid
As user rancid
	source /etc/rancid/rancid.conf
	NOPIPE=yes;export NOPIPE
	rancid -d switchname

Look for *.new and *.raw in the directory

Hi Gary,

I've seen similar things when autoenable was set to the wrong value.
