I do not know much of anything about PAN devices.  However, be aware that,
depending upon your rancid configuration, passwords may be removed.  Also,
see the FAQ S1 Q5 for another caveat that may apply to PAN.

Also, include the error you received when attempting to load the config.
It might provide clue to someone with more experience with PAN.
