Every time Rancid runs against a specific switch, I get Error: TIMEOUT reached.  When I try to ssh manually, I notice it does take a while, but eventally, the prompt does come up.  Where is the Rancid timeout value set so I can extend it?

Thanks

In bin/rancid, there's a line:

$timeo = 90;                # clogin timeout in seconds

Open in new window


I didn't test it, but I guess that's what needs to be changed.

Bingo.  in bin/rancid, it was already set to 90, but it inspired me to go look at clogin, and it was set to 45 seconds.  I set it to 90 as such

# Sometimes routers take awhile to answer (the default is 10 sec)
set timeoutdflt 90


works great now.  Thank you very much
