Interesting… I see this in the logs.

/home/rancid/var/CVS/SJC1/configs/sjc-sw14.endor.lan,v  <--  configs/sjc-sw14.endor.lan
new revision: 1.5; previous revision: 1.4
/home/rancid/bin/control_rancid: 642: /home/rancid/bin/control_rancid: -t: not found

rancid at sjc-nettools02:~/var/logs$ ls /home/rancid/bin/control_rancid
rancid at sjc-nettools02:~/var/logs$

It’s there, so why is it complaining?

Subject: No email sent to MTA with 3.2

First off, there’s no problem with Rancid3.2  actually running.  It finishes the run, logs the config, checks in the updated changes into CVS, but no email is sent.    I’ve been paying attention to the problems others have had with 3.x.  :)

We use Ubuntu 14.0.4 with Exim4 and when rancid-run finishes, I don’t see anything going to the MTA in the exim logs.   If I use mailx or mail to the alias I setup in the /etc/aliases file I receive the email and logs appropriately.

Is there some trigger or config change that needs to tell rancid to enable email delivery?
