netdisco-rancid-export - Generate RANCID Group Configuration
Note! This script is now deprecated and no longer maintained. The replacement is
built in to Netdisco core, so can be scheduled in the backend, and also has
more powerful configuration. See
This script requires some configuration to be added to your Netdisco
""~/environments/deployment.yml"" file, for example:
down_age: '1 day'
by_ip: [ other ]
by_hostname: [ other2 ]
switch: [ 'name:.*[Ss][Ww].*' ]
rtr: [ 'name:[rR]tr.*' ]
ap: [ 'name:[aA][pP].*' ]
Note that "netdisco-rancid-export" is not part of the automatic
scheduler built in to Netdisco. You should run this script via
"cron" just after your periodic "discoverall".
The location to write RANCID Group configuration files into. A subdirectory for
each Group will be created.
This should be the same or greater than the interval between regular discover
jobs on your network. Devices which have not been discovered within this time
will be marked as ""down"" to RANCID.
Default: ""1 day"".
RANCID version 3 uses a semicolon as delimiter. Set this to the delimiter
character if needed to be different from the default.
If the device Vendor in Netdisco is not the same as the RANCID vendor script,
configure a mapping here. The left hand side (key) should be the Netdisco
vendor, the right hand side (value) should be the RANCID vendor script name.
You can also set the Netdisco vendor to be
""vendor:model"" for fine-grained control. See the
synopsis for an example.
This dictionary maps RANCID Group names with configuration which will match
devices in the Netdisco database. The configuration is the same as any of
Netdisco's "*_only" settings, and accepts IP, prefix, device
List of RANCID Groups which will have Device IPs written to the RANCID
configuration file, instead of DNS or SNMP host names.
List of RANCID Groups which will have Device Hostname written to the RANCID
configuration file, instead of FQDN. This is done simply by stripping the
"domain_suffix" configuration item from the FQDN.
