[LDM #SVU-966060]: LDM - LDM hangs up.



Scott,

93 connections to downstream LDM-s is a lot.  I take it that the hardware in 
question is pretty good.

Changing the operating-system *shouldn't* affect the LDM, but apparently it has 
in your case.  Could you upgrade your LDM to the latest version that was just 
released (v 6.4.6)?  There have been more that a couple of bug-fixes since 
version 6.3.0 and it's possible that one of them has fixed your problem.

Steve Emmerson
