Hi Steve & Gilbert, all.

Thanks for your response and help.

Some good progress.... first: silly, silly problem -- and a major oversight on my part -- even after all of the preaching re: a synchronized clock at the workshop. The clock was set to CDT instead of EDT; none of the products were coming in until 1 hour later. Once we set the clock, everything began working as it should. The minutes and seconds looked fine; I didn't notice that the hour was one off.

Heh. You know, I have to stop assuming everyone is running NTP and
they have their time zone set correctly. Years ago, I had this issue,
and I remember scratching my head on it until I think, if I remember correctly, I glanced at the clock and wondered why it was so close to quitting time. Then I looked at the big clock on my wall, and realized...oops! The data then flowed.

You've *got* to get logging enabled on Twister2. Is it a Linux system?
If so, what is the value of the SELINUX parameter in the file
If it isn't "disabled", then set it to that value.

Yes, it is set to this "disabled". I am Unix competent but not an expert. If you have any advice here, I'd be thankful.

Thanks again for taking the time to help us and have a nice weekend,

Do you have syslog installled? Make sure that it is. In etc/syslog.conf,
for most Linux installations, you should have this line (or similar to it) in here:

# For ldm.
local0.debug                                            /home/ldm/logs/ldmd.log
