I can't help directly since I don't have access to Dell devices.

However, if you can code Perl, there is a possible work-around:

If the device does not provide a command for disabling
the pager, you may be able to scroll thru the paging
with the method expect_enable_prompt_paging()
available in the module, like this:

($prematch, $match) = $self->expect_enable_prompt_paging($t, $prompt, '--More-- ');
if (!defined($prematch)) {
$self->log_error("could not find end of configuration");
return 1;

I am able to successfully fetch configs from a number of different Dell powerconnect devices except for our 3348's.

It appears the pager functionality is broken for these devices.

fetchconfig: dev=3348 host=3348: error: dell: could not match enable/paging prompt: /(3348#)|(\Q--More-- or (q)uit\E)$/

One difference of note is that the our 3448's support the 'terminal datadump' command while the 3348's do not appear to.

Any help is appreciated.
