Hi Ian

Your link has helped me a lot.
My mistake was the directory permissions.

- set the correct persissions
- deleted the $BASEDIR/<groupname>
- rancid-cvs
- edit the router.db
- configure host name resolution in /etc/hosts
- configure .cloginrc with the hostname
- rancid-run
... and it rocks ...

Many thanx for anybody's help and response.
