Its through SSH. We use RADIUS so upon logging into the switches you're
already at the enable prompt. So I do have autoenable set to 1.
I'm using rancid 3.7 and 3.4. I just setup 3.9 on a different machine and
copied my routers.db file over along with the .cloginrc and it worked
For giggles I set autoenable to 0 and changed my ssh configuration on the
switch to remove autoenable and specified an enable password in .cloginrc.
RANCID ran and backed up without issue.
Whats in your rancid logs? What version of the switch are you running?
The reason you should use smc over dell is because the show run command the
dell device type uses doesn't work on the m8024k. But also because in
rancid.types.base it says to use it for the m8024k :P
