Main Page/RANCID with Juniper logical-systems

RANCID 3.x is nice in that it made some usable configuration files to define your own device types. If you happen to be in a scenario where you only have admin access to a logical-system in a Juniper device, you can't get "show chassis" or "show system" as that user. Workaround would be to define a new device type without those commands.

  • Added to rancid.types.conf:
# juniper logical system (cant show chassis stuff)
juniper-ls;script;rancid -t juniper-ls
juniper-ls;login;jlogin
juniper-ls;module;junos  
juniper-ls;inloop;junos::inloop
juniper-ls;command;junos::ShowVersion;show version detail
juniper-ls;command;junos::ShowConfiguration;show configuration
  • edit router.db to set the type from juniper to juniper-ls on that device.
