Hi Everyone,

I know this has been talked about before but I'm still having the issue with Dell PowerConnects and Up Time triggering diffs.

I checked the srancid file and it does have the correct syntax: 
/ Up Time/i && next;

I'm a little confused as to what login file gets called out when rancid runs. Currently I have ukbswid09 set to SMC type and it is pulling the config.

$./rancid -d -t smc  ukbswid09 
loadtype: device type smc 
loadtype: found device type smc in /usr/local/rancid/etc/rancid.types.base 
executing hlogin -t 90 -c"" ukbswid09 
inloop is not configured for device type smc at ./rancid line 126. 
write(spawn_id=1): broken pipe 
while executing 
"send_user "$router\n"" 
("foreach" body line 3) 
invoked from within 
"foreach router [lrange $argv $i end] { 
set router [string tolower $router] 
send_user "$router\n" 

# device timeout 
set timeout [find t..." 
(file "/usr/local/rancid/bin/hlogin" line 632)

$ ./rancid -d -t dell ukbswid09 
loadtype: device type dell 
loadtype: found device type dell in /usr/local/rancid/etc/rancid.types.base 
executing dllogin -t 300 -c"show switch;show config current_config" ukbswid09 
HIT COMMAND:UKBSWID09-CH2-B2#show switch 
In GetSystem: UKBSWID09-CH2-B2#show switch 
HIT COMMAND:UKBSWID09-CH2-B2#show config current_config 
In GetConf: UKBSWID09-CH2-B2#show config current_config 
ukbswid09: End of run not found 
ukbswid09: End of run not found 
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Understating how login files get called will hopefully make me more self sufficient and not need to post questions to the board.
