Adding a new device type

This is the general process for adding a new vendor device type to RANCID:

  1. Use a copy of clogin and rancid
  2. Make the necessary changes for login access and getting information out of the device
  3. Update rancid-fe for the new vendor
  4. Update check_rancid_connection with the new vendor
  5. Add to the database table opsview.rancid_vendors with the name of the vendor and the rancid_name of the vendor. For new installs and updates, add this vendor information into opsview-rancid/opsview-plugins/postinstall/rancid
  6. Push any changes back upstream if applicable
