While running a Device.CLI.Modify Config job to modify the management access-list on Cisco SF-500 SmallBusiness switches there are errors and waiting times:
Waiting for an echo of permit ip-source 126.96.36.199 mask 255.0.0.0 service snmp command
Waiting for an echo of <Ctrl-Z> command
Waiting for a response to: copy run start
The cli commands are tested manually and are OK, but appearantly cattools does not receive what it expects.
Using cattools 3.10.0 (Enterprise)
SW version 188.8.131.52 ( date 02-May-2013 time 14:56:31 )
Boot version 1.3.0.03 ( date 23-Jul-2012 time 10:32:34 )
HW version V02
System Description: 24-Port 10/100 PoE Stackable Managed Switch
Normally, when commands are sent out, CatTools will wait for an echo of that command before proceeding. Some commands, however, will not produce an echo and so the activity will fail at this point.
The %ctUM: EchoOff command will tell CatTools to send out any further commands in this activity without waiting for and echo.
I found the above document here:
Try to add this meta command before your list of commands and see if it helps.
Thanks, i will try that as a workaround.
Since these devices / activity / cattools version are formally supported and are "green" in the support matrix i would expect this to work without needing any workarounds.
