I am looking for Rancid scripts for my Brocade 5100s. Does anyone have a secret stash they would be willing to share?

I use the scripts from here, with a little change for getting the whole config

In brocaderancid

@commandtable = (
    {'chassisShow'  => 'ChassisShow'},
    {'firmwareShow' => 'FirmwareShow'},
  {'version'            => 'FirmwareShow'},
    #{'fosConfig --show'        => 'Fosconfig'},
    {'ipAddrShow'       => 'IpAddrShow'},
  {'licenseShow'    => 'LicenseShow'},
    {'domainsShow'  => 'DomainsShow'},
    {'configupload -force -l config.txt'    => 'ConfigUploadlocal'},
    {'configshow -l config.txt'     => 'ConfigShow'}

I had to make a couple of additional modifications to get this to work for me on my SLKWRM0000200 running Fabric OS v6.2.2b.

I had to add the following to the %vendortable array in rancid-fe: 'brocade' => 'brocaderancid',

Then I used "brocade" as the system type in router.db like so: fc-sw03:brocade:up

I also had to change "set avautoenable 1" in brocadelogin since the username that rancid uses has an admin role. If i could figure out how to create a read-only user that would have access to enough info, I'd use that instead.
