> Regarding some PowerConnect N2000/3000/4000 series switches, I am getting "End of run not found" errors. If I use the smc type that is recommended in the rancid.types.base file, I have the added pleasure of getting "missed cmd(s): show version, dir, show vlan". Trying cisco as a type doesn't change the 'end of run' error, although I don't miss any commands. Trying my powerconnect type that I made earlier also results in 'end of run not found'.

it means that it did not find the end of the config.  look at the raw
output and srancid -dl <hostname> for missed command matches.  I suspect
that it srancid is not recognizing the prompt due to mangled input or
unexpected characters in the prompt.
