After seeing that the regularly scheduled rancid run failed to get
several F5 configs this morning I ran it manually:
rancid collected all the configs & no errors in the log. Crontab
kicked off the rancid run later in the day & several F5s showed up in
the log with the
missed cmd(s): ls --full-time --color=never /config/ssl/ssl.crt,ls
--full-time --color=never /config/ssl/ssl.key
again, run rancid manually with NOPIPE=YES and everything works.

option. I have yet to see rancid fail to get an F5 config if nopipe
