[rancid] Re: End of run not found... Running rancid 2.3.2 version

I figured out my problem.

The issue is my customer is using TACACS command authorization and more 
system:running-config is not an authorized command which caused that 
command to exit without clean run.

rtr-lab1#more system:running-config
Command authorization failed.

I remarked out that command and things are working fine.

My host name is sanitized so many of you might have thought if this is 
lab box then why didn't I know about command authorization. However I 
don't control tacacs here and the real host is actually a customer device.
