They covered almost everything there correctly for me but I did run into a few things I had to change..
apt-get install rancid cvsweb cvs
I’m using MS RADIUS for AD user integration and privilege level 15 on login and SSH so I needed to set:
add autoenable  *       1
add user        *       username
add password    *       userpassword     
add method      *       ssh

In /var/lib/rancid/.cloginrc.

I also used “su -s /bin/bash rancid” to change to the rancid user and run all the needed commands from there.
“/var/lib/rancid/bin/rancid-cvs”
“/var/lib/rancid/bin/rancid-run”
“crontab -e”
“1 10 * * * /usr/local/rancid/bin/rancid-run”
Edit that time in crontab to run at whatever interval you like.

I used exim4 for mail and it was installed by default. Edit /etc/aliases and restart mail “service exim4 restart”.
Everything pretty much worked out of the box.
