Good afternoon from the Central Coast of Ca.

                I'm new to both Rancid and Mikrotik and getting a successful
config pull from a MT 6.35.4 VM is proving difficult. I've read quite allot
today and tried most everything I read. The result is rancid can login via
ssh but pulls a zero byte config. First issue appeared to be a timeout issue
which I addressed in the config. Now the issue appears to be "missed
cmd(s)". Details below;


Rancid Verion 2.3.8

Server OS CentOS 6 (Vmware guest)

Mikrotik version 6.35.4 (Vmware guest)

Error messages (rounds 1-4) "missed cmd(s): system license print,system
routerboard print,export"

Group in rancid.conf "LIST_OF_GROUPS="CHC_Creston":

.cloginrc pertinent config changes below

#*****YOUR CONFIG HERE******


add noenable * {1}

add method {ssh}

add user {admin}

add password {abc123} {}

add timeout 500

add sshcmd {/usr/local/rancid/bin/mtrancid}


routers.up contains ""

router.db contains ""

configs directory shows the host with zero byte config;

[root at cre-util-01 configs]# pwd



[root at cre-util-01 configs]# ll

total 4

-rw-r----- 1 rancid netadm    0 Aug 10 13:36

drwxr-x--- 2 rancid netadm 4096 Aug 10 13:36 CVS

[root at cre-util-01 configs]# more

[root at cre-util-01 configs]#


                I must be missing something simple here as I see allot of
folks have been using rancid for a long time on the MT platform. Any
feedback on where I'm falling down would be great, thanks so much.
