I found this:

But I need the solution for Nexus/nxrancid.  Alan, can you post that one

Also, a more fundamental question... how does rancid fit in with the
specialized scripts like nxrancid, cat5rancid, etc...  Specifically, if I
was using only Nexus gear in my Rancid-monitored network, would I need to
make changes in rancid _and_ nxrancid, or just the latter?
