add autoenable {10.5.x.x} 1

Do you still have some telnet only devices?  I prefer everything does
ssh except for these few devices - eg:

add method    (10.5.x.y} {telnet}
add method    (10.5.x.z} {telnet}
add method    *   {ssh}

fixing the autoenable syntax might be all you need, but having the
enablePassword won't hurt
add password {rancidpass}  {rancidpass}
