Hullo all

  I've poked around the list archives and haven't found any information about using RANCiD with the Cisco 1000V virtualized switch/router.  (Information on that product here - http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/nexus-1000v-switch-vmware-vsphere/data_sheet_c78-492971.html)

  If I use a device type of "cisco" it works, but has the same minor but annoying problems that you get when monitoring a Nexus 5K with device type cisco.  If I use device type "cisco-nx" it simply does not work at all - after 24 hours I start getting the "unable to connect to device" emails every hour.   Has anyone else run into this yet, or am I the first?


PS:   I implemented rancid with git and gitweb a month ago and set up monitoring and automatic remote git a month or so ago and it's FANTASTIC... saves me a lot of work and the price is right.  Thank you Mr. Heasley and co-conspirators!
