So I have followed all of the trouble shooting steps in the FAQ as stated below. If I run the following command all works well and I get the file and output I am looking for rancid -d -t cisco slc-core02. If I run the rancid-run -r slc-core02 I get the following in the log message
slc-core02: missed cmd(s): all commands
slc-core02 clogin error: Error: Connection closed (ssh): slc-core02
slc-core02: End of run not found
This was working with no issues and now has not been backing up. It is still working for all other routers in the router.db the entry for these is simple and should be fine slc-core02;cisco;up any advice or options to try and get this working again would be appreciated.
Q. I have a (set of) device(s) on which collection fails. How can I debug
A. Our usual diagnostic procedure for this is:
- Make sure that the appropriate *login (example: clogin for cisco) works.
This tests to make sure you don't have routing or firewall issues, DNS
or hostname errors, that your .cloginrc is correct, your banner does
not have some character that *login does not like, and that the *login
script doesn't have a bug of some sort. For example:
Should login to cisco_router and produce a router prompt that you can
use normally, as if clogin were not used (i.e.: telnet cisco_router).
- See if commands can be executed on the router via clogin. This will
exercise the *login functionality needed for rancid. For example:
clogin -c 'show version; show diag' cisco_router
Should login to cisco_router, run show version and show diag, then
disconnect and exit. The output will be displayed on your terminal.
- Then see if the correct rancid commands work against the router. For
Should produce a cisco_router.new file (cooked to a golden rancid-style
colour) in the current directory. If it does not, try again with the
-d option, so that the cisco_router.new file will not be removed if
an error is detected. Note: if you have NOPIPE set in your environment,
a cisco_router.raw file will be produced that is the raw output of the
dialogue with the device.
If all of these work, make sure that the device's entry in the group's
router.db file is correct and check the group's last log file for errors.
