RANCID version 2.3.8 running on Centos6.6


Normal collection jobs are working fine and I don't see any exceptions in
the logs.


However, when I try to run a script that makes changes on the firewall, I am
seeing some errors in the log file.


Created new directory for scripts: /usr/local/rancid/scripts/migration


Contents of script file:



/usr/local/rancid/bin/clogin -x $1.txt swsg-extfw01 >> $1.log
