Hi all,

I try to migrate my existing rancid-2.3.8 installation to a new host with Ubuntu 12.04. I downloaded ftp://ftp.shrubbery.net/pub/rancid/rancid-2.3.8.tar.gz and installed it to /usr/local/rancid. I copied the .cloginrc and rancid.conf to the new host and wanted to test with a new router.db first, containing only 6 HP Procurve switches (switchname:hp:up). I can login successfully to each switch with "bin/clogin switchname" and I also tried "bin/hlogin -f .cloginrc -c "show version" switchname" which gives me a "no page" output first, but then the version and a completed logout.

But executing "bin/rancid switchname" results in the following:
sh: 1: clogin: not found
switchname: missed cmd(s): dir /all slavedisk2:,show rsp chassis-info,show capture,dir /all sec-slot2:,show diag,dir:
switchname: End of run not found

I found this existing thread http://www.shrubbery.net/pipermail/rancid-discuss/2008-November/003404.html but however I don't know what to do exactly to solve the problem.

Any suggestions would be appreciated
