turning on rancid, seems to be easy; but if it's working, where are the files located ?? where is the link to the files located in the web interface ?
The rancid property in the node information is a placeholder added by people who use rancid with NMIS, we have not received any contributions for NMIS8 and rancid integration, so I guess this is a little confusing.
You can modify NMIS to display any links you need to based on node properties, the best spot would be in createHrButtons in NMIS.pm.
You can add that function as next
Add the node
You can search rancid field and set false to true, if you already create the node, you have to edit and put false to true.
