Hi there

We have several SteelHeads deployed and want to take a snapshot of the 
configuration using Rancid.
The clogin works but thereafter it just stops

Clogin results

expect: does "il-riverbed-cx1555L > " (spawn_id exp4) match regular 
expression "[\r\n]+"? (No Gate, RE only) gate=yes re=no
"^(.+[:.])1 ((>|#| \(enable\)))"? (No Gate, RE only) gate=yes re=no
"^.+(>|#| \(enable\))"? (No Gate, RE only) gate=yes re=yes
expect: set expect_out(0,string) "il-riverbed-cx1555L >"
expect: set expect_out(1,string) ">"
expect: set expect_out(spawn_id) "exp4"
expect: set expect_out(buffer) "il-riverbed-cx1555L >"

Then using a script call rblogin which does not seem to run but does 
enter the switch

[rancid at Rancid bin]$ ./rblogin il-rb-1
spawn ssh -c aes128-ctr -x -l admin il-rb-1

I have tried to read up what others are doing about Riverbed and Rancid 
but don't find anything

Thank you
