Hi guys. I really hope someone can point me in the right direction.

I have setup Rancid as per guide
http://www.shrubbery.net/rancid/RhysEvans_overview_0.3.pdf and
http://www.itnotes.eu/?p=365 but I am having issues running it for the
first time.

I have added a Cisco switch to my config for checking and I can manually
connect to it by running "bin/clogin". I have ran
"bin/rancid-run" and I get the following in the log files:

starting: Mon 6 Feb 11:18:12 GMT 2017

WARNING: Have you forgotten to update the FS in router.db?

cvs commit: Examining .
cvs commit: Examining configs
Checking in router.db;
/usr/local/rancid/var/CVS/networking/router.db,v  <--  router.db
new revision: 1.4; previous revision: 1.3

ending: Mon 6 Feb 11:18:14 GMT 2017
networking.20170206.111812 (END)

If I then browse to var/networking/configs/  I have to file/directory
specifically for my device, only the main CVS directory.

Can anyone advise where I may have gone wrong?
