Hey all,

I'm getting the following error from our crontab runs:

loadtype(): device_type is empty

Couldn't load device type spec for

I know the most common reason for this is if you don't use ; in the 3.1 router.db which isn't the case here as we have it set correctly.   Doing rancid-run and rancid -t cisco router.ip works correctly.

Any pointers would be very helpful.
