Yes, looks like login working but you have to use "-autoenable" instead of -noenable
or set "add autoenable <hostname|ip|*> 1" in your .cloginrc

-noenable only useful if you login and stay at operator level.
HP switches, and some other devices that login directly to manager level, need to have autoenable on.
