> I have a pair of 6500's running IOS that were recently added to Rancid 3.2 and are failing their runs. They are configured as devtype cisco and the logs report the following:
> sn1-outsw9: missed cmd(s): show running-config view full,show running-config,write term
> sn1-outsw9: End of run not found
> These errors occur on rounds 1-4 at which point Rancid gives up. When I run a packet capture of the conversation however the commands appear to work properly. Below I've removed the output of the various show config commands but the entire config was present in all three cases, and Rancid properly logged off of the switch using "exit" after the final command:
> <earlier commands truncated>
> sn1-outsw9#more system:running-config
> .more system:running-config
> Command authorization failed.

this is most likely the problem.  rancid will stop here with a failure.
