Where did you copy the files from. Sounds like you missed the hidden directories.  Probably want to copy them or you'll lose all change information.

Hi all,

I copied some files and broke our rancid system because CVS obviously doesn’t like people messing with its files (that’s understandable).

So after lots of trying to fix the problem, I am resorting to asking you for help.

Where do I start?  rancid-cvs returns nothing (It produced output back in the day I set this up).

My logs say the following after a rancid-run.

Trying to get all of the configs.
All routers sucessfully completed.

cvs diff: in directory .:
cvs [diff aborted]: there is no version here; run 'cvs checkout' first
cvs commit: in directory .:
cvs [commit aborted]: there is no version here; run 'cvs checkout' first

ending: Wed Sep 25 13:42:54 BST 2013

(I have tried running ‘cvs checkout’ (and cvs add, and cvs remove and cvs update amongst others).

Any assistance gratefully received..
