- Modified Cisco.Router.General for Device.Backup.Running Config activity to check for 'buggy' device IOS versions of the device enable prompt which may contain NULL characters between the carriage return , line feed and device hostname.
- Modified Cisco.Router.General to remove checking for "%Error opening" text in output of 'show tech' command which would cause Device.CLI.Send commands activity to fail on certain devices.
- Modified Cisco.Switch.IOS to remove checking for "%Error opening" text and "Error:" text in output of 'show tech' command which would cause Device.CLI.Send commands activity to fail on certain devices.
- Modified Juniper.Application.Accelerator adding "# Created locally at" to ignore text for Device.Backup.Running Config activity.
- Fixed bug in Cisco.Router.General for the Device.Backup.Running Config activity, where the config would intermittently be truncated if CatTools encounters the 'prompt hostname#' config line in the command output.
- Removed testing code block from Client.Custom.Activity.Template.txt which causes script error if copied across into user custom activity script files.
