> Hi there,
> I've been fighting against this for a couple of days and my scripting isn't strong enough to figure out where this is going wrong.
> I've setup RANCID and I've got it working successfully pulling my configs from my Brocade Fiber Channel switches. I've used brocadelogin/brocaderancid from here: https://lists.gt.net/rancid/users/5454
> Where I'm having issues is in my primary site where the active zone config is very large. The configuration definition line consists of a tag followed by all the zones separated by semi-colons. When I look at a normal configuration upload, this line is 11,000 characters long. If I ssh into the switch and show the config, I see 11,000 characters. However, when I look at what is captured by RANCID, I only get a line that is ~4200 characters long, and it appears to be the last 4200 characters of the line (like data is rolling through a buffer). I can't seem to find anywhere that is setting this length.
> Any suggestions where I could look to resolve this?
11k is ridiculous. did they hire folks from Foundry.
is it really whatever you are using to view the file?
does brocadelogin -c 'whateverthecommandsistodisplaytheconfig' hostname
work? else it might be perl, though a search suggests not; brocaderancid
hostname and look for the truncation. is it the SCM you're using?
