[rancid] Unable to pull configuration from Cisco WLC 8.5

Do you have the .raw file?

I had this problem at one point too.  It had something to do with not correctly parsing the logout sequence.  I modified my version to check for the right sequence, but it was an old version of rancid, and my specific logout sequence was caught in a newer version.  But, 8.5.161 might have changed the specific text that the logout sequence sends, so rancid’s parser might not catch it yet.

Subject: [rancid] Unable to pull configuration from Cisco WLC 8.5

Rancid version: 3.12
Cisco WLC:

I cannot successfully pull the configuration from my Cisco WLC.  In every case, it just gives the generic error “End of run not found.”  However, if I execute the command to pull configuration via rancid, the .new file looks complete and without issue.  I have tried changing the various commands executed but with no success.  Looking for a smarter person than I to perhaps give some direction or recommendations.
