[rancid] Couple of very general questions.

If you have a cli access to the switches and can dump the config, then
it should be very possible to do with the switches. I've done that with
PaloAlto, the Fortinet Routers, and Ubiquiti stuff. It's not so hard.

Summary: If it doesn't work in Rancid, it's usually not hard to make it
work (again).

>> We are looking at jumping off our current switch platform for a number of annoying reasons and are considering a couple of options for replacement.  I use Rancid pretty heavily and I wondered if I could get some feedback on how Rancid works with those vendors (it seems there's support, but the devil is in the details) from people using the equipment.
>> We're looking at Fortinet switches, as we use their firewalls.  I have Rancid well integrated with the firewalls and as I understand it, the switches are downloaded from the firewalls when in linked mode.  Do the switch configs get uploaded to rancid as part of the firewall's configuration backup?  Or do you have to somehow interrogate each switch separately like we do for our current switches?
>> The other option we're looking at is Extreme.  I see that it is managed by the standard clogin (according to the Rancid docs) and just wondered if there was anything to be aware of with interfacing to their gear.
>> Also, recommend considering juniper and arista.
