    F5 BigIP cli backup fails

    kirvin

      Try to backup an F5 using SSH cli.  The backups are failing with the error "Did not receive echo of modify modify cli preference page enabled display-threshold 0 command"

       

      This is the variations file:

      COMMAND_DISABLEPAGING = "modify cli preference pager disabled display-threshold 0"

      COMMAND_RUNNINGCONFIG = "list"

       

      I've tried disabling echo but get the same result.  The output of the config capture is below.  Almost like a carriage return is not being sent after the disable paging command.  Any help getting this working would be appreciated.

       

      Syntax Error: invalid property value "display-threshold":"0list"

          Try to enable capture mode: File\Enable capture mode.

           

          Run the activity (a file will be created in your \CatTools3\debug folder), remove any sensitive information, and paste the results here please.
