Re: MCIDAS

I have reported this to ldm support with my former (and current on a
part-time basis now)
at NSBF/NMSU.  Occasionally if ldmfail ( ldm ver. 5.1.2) runs and
switches sites, or if you do an ldmadmin stop/start
manually ldmadmin ps will show no processes but actually the inge McIDAS
processes hang (do a ps -lu ldm
or similar) and won't let and McIDAS files be written.  You will write
errors in ldmd.log.  Sometimes
it's only the binary, sometimes it's the text, sometimes it is both.  I
have seen this on
a Solaris 7 SPARC and a Solaris 8 Intel machine.
