Hi Tobias,

Thanks a lot. I use latest version of Rancid 2.3.8 and the line to change doesn't look the same. Therefore I've modified as follow, and will test to let you know, thanks again.

-       next if (/^(System|(Active|Standby) Management|LP Slot \d+) uptime is/);
+       next if (/^(System|(Active|Standby) Management|LP Slot \d+|Switch Fabric Module \d+) (uptime|Up Time) is/);
