We have some radios that needed to be running custom firmware because they stock one causes some sort of interference with one of the other carriers - Verizon I believe, but cannot recall at this point. These radios are NOT getting backed up and I suspect it is due to the version string at the command prompt, though the discovery log just reports 'telnet_unavailable' and 'ssh_unavailable'. Might be nice if it gave a bit more information as well. However the command prompt when I ssh into these units shows:


Hopefully this can be a quick fix so that they are supported going forward. Thanks!

Indeed, that type of prompt is not supported, so Unimus would not be able to recognize this device.
Fixed it and here is a dev build with support: link

As for 'telnet_unavailable' and 'ssh_unavailable', those errors are only generated when Unimus can't connect to SSH and/or Telnet on the device. (if Unimus was able to connect but would not recognize this device, it would generate an 'unsupported_device' error)

Please try if you can SSH/Telnet to the device from the Unimus server and let me know if it works with the new build.
