please show us the error from the log file and tell us what version of
rancid.  also, please follow the test in the FAQ S3 Q2.

Also, for some devices show version is required; as the device type can
affect other parsing.  I doubt that is the problem for nxos, but you
also commented this:

> #cisco-nx;command;rancid::RunCommand;term no monitor-force

which i suspect is the problem, having now seen the errors.

please read the warning at the top of etc/rancid.types.base
