[rancid] cvsweb/cvs help

I did it the easy way.  Host file entries, then in the device list I just used the hostnames.  This then populated cvsweb with hostnames.  I did it this way since I’m not adding devices more than 1-2 every 6 months.

I tried as you suggested and nothing. I would have to mod the cvsweb.cgi for that to work and I am no perl guru by any stretch. Anyone else do this and how did you accomplish it?

> Greetings,
> I am currently running rancid on CentOS release 5.6 (Final) using cvs and cvsweb. This current configuration works great, however the display leaves something to be desired. We are keeping track of a number of configurations on various routers and switches, etc... but this is all done on our internal management network which has no DNS entries. So when I go to look at it, it is a giant list of IP addresses. It would be nice to have some sort of description on it. I could do a workaround by adding entries to a local dns or even the hosts file but I would rather a description field. If anyone has done this successfully, some guidance would be appreciated.

Try cvsadmin -t (see manpage) for each file.  that MAY appear in the cvsview
(etc) pages; I do not know.
