[rancid] Can't update router.db

What rancid group is your cron job passing to do-diffs?  Is it the same group that you’ve modified, or a different one?  Did you update the router.db file of the group that do-diffs is executing?

Subject: [rancid] Can't update router.db


I have a rancid install on centos.  It appears to all be working however, if I replace the contents of the router.db file with the new devices it still connects to the old ones.  I have deleted the file and created a new one with only the new device ip addresses and it still continues to try and get configs from the old devices???  Where is it getting this from?

I am able to clogin to any of the new devices without trouble, so its not a connection issue, but somehow the old router.db file is cached?

Any help would be appreciated.
