Hoping this might help someone else..
if you use rancid to manage your configs, on the 5524, it changes the word "console#" to the name of the 'systemname" and rancid will not see console# at the end and exit. it will think it was unsuccessfull
Simply clear the systemname and rancid has been working for me.
On behalf our community, I would like to thank you for taking the time to provide information that may help resolve many questions about the compatibility of the PowerConnect 5524.
