I've had no problems with our lonely SRX100b, in any versions of RANCID 3.x, up to and including 3.7.
The SRX is running 12.1X46-D55.3

Hello all,

I am setting up a test enviroment on Ubuntu 16.04 before Rancid will go to a production enviroment.

Everytime I run Rancid I get the following error:

“Use of uninitialized value $_ in pattern match (m//) at /usr/share/perl5/rancid/junos.pm line 135

Use of uninitialized value $_ in pattern match (m//) at /usr/share/perl5/rancid/junos.pm line 140

00003-test-fw01: missed cmd(s): show configuration, show version invoke-on other-routing-engine, show system core-dumps, show version detail

00003-test-fw01: End of run not foud

# Error: TIMEOUT reached”

When I go the the part that the log (/usr/share/perl5/rancid/junos.pm) tells me, the part is following:

“$rval = {$commands{$cmd}}{$INPUT, $OUTPUT, $cmd};


if {$rval == -1} {                                // this is the line 135

               $clean_run = 0;

               last TOP;


if (/>\s*quit/){                                  // this is line 140




The command I am using to run Rancid is:
“sudo su -c /var/lib/rancid/bin/rancid-run -s /bin/bash -l rancid”

Could you please help me?

You havent told us what version of rancid nor from where you retrieved it. If its not 3.7, please start there. If it already is, but it is a ubuntu package, please try an install from source.

Kind regards,
