This could happen for two reasons:

1. previous step's completion rules are set to "auto or idle" or "idle" which means that step will be considered complete after certain amount of idle time.

2. the prompts are very loose and something in the previous step's response matched the prompt

 

You can verify #2 by looking at the "Structure" view for the previous step and see if there is a prompt node and what its value is.

 

You can verify #1 by looking at the previous step's properties and looking at the "Completion" node in the property tree.

Thank you, KumarS. There was a problem with command completion rule as given in reason #1. Setting it to Auto and Idle helped me to get rid of this issue. Thank you.

Most telnet/ssh steps need the completion rule to be set to "Auto and Idle". It is recommended that this should be the default in session profile or the testbed. Then only on steps where you do need it to be different, you can set it to appropriate value.
