Question Issues Executing Script - Separate Hosts/Commands File and Log to Individual Files

However, the script code is architected to allow you to change this behavior so that it's all logged to one file per host, or even just to a single file.

Download the example scripts:

Example ##hosts.txt and ##commands.txt files:
The following show you the format of what the ##hosts.txt and ##commands.txt files would look like.The ##hosts.txt file can contain host-specific command file directives, which is what the ##DeviceType1Commands.txt and ##DeviceType2Commands.txt files exemplify.

I downloaded the example script mentioned above and I am able to have it execute the host list. I am using the script to connect to multiple Cisco routers and need it to enter configuration mode. The commands.txt file executes the first few lines as expected, but after executing "configure" the script hangs. I suspect that it is hanging because the prompt changes from # to (config)#. I cannot find the location in the script that forces the script to only continue after seeing the prompt of # to return. I need to change that to allow the continuance if the changed prompt occurs. Any advice?
