I've gotten a little further in my hopes of getting these Dell powerconnect switches backed up w/o the up time creating diffs each run.

I added the rancid.types.conf with what's below. 
test;command;ShowVersion;show version

When I run the command below it generates the following errors.
[rancid at ALVMANL01 etc]$ /usr/local/rancid/bin/rancid -d -t test ukbswid05 
loadtype: device type test 
loadtype: found device type test in /usr/local/rancid/etc/rancid.types.conf 
ukbswid05: missed cmd(s): show system,show vlan,show version,show running-config 
found_end = 0, clean_run = 0 
ukbswid05: End of run not found 
write(spawn_id=1): broken pipe 
while executing 
"send_user "$router\n"" 
("foreach" body line 3) 
invoked from within 
"foreach router [lrange $argv $i end] { 
set router [string tolower $router] 
send_user "$router\n" 

# device timeout 
set timeout [find t..." 
(file "/usr/local/rancid/bin/dlogin" line 509) 
ukbswid05: missed cmd(s): all commands 
ukbswid05: End of run not found

Am I on the right path or even more screwed up than before?

Thanks for the look.
