I have this setup LMS3.2 on a virtual windows server2008, ESX3.5 and the problem I have is that it is very difficult to start Daemon manager. It finally starts if I manually tries to start it, like 100-200 times, and the n the rest of LMS starts and runs fine. Done a lot of actions on the server without success and also have a TAC case. In syslog it says its cannot bind to port 42340.

Anyone that recognize this problem ?

Works fine for me. I have one Windows 2003 VM and two 2008 VMs on ESX 3.5. Daemon Manager starts properly every time. If you get the error that it cannot bind to tcp/42340, then something else is using that port. The output of netstat -a -n -o -b will tell you what that is.

thanks Joe


Already tried that, port is not used.


Nothing else is installed on the server.


Had it working after resetting casuser password, but after a reboot its stubborn again and the reset does not help again.

TAC can walk you through enabling dmgtd debugging. But make sure the VM meets the minimum requirements in terms of memory and swap.

I misread your version. I thought you were running 2003. With 2008, the problem is certainly swap. Make sure you do NOT let Windows automatically configure swap. Instead, manually specify a pagefile size of at least 2048 MB, and at most the required amount of the number of devices you are going to manage.

I have a pagefile size of 16000 MB, manually configured...

Then dmgtd debugging will be required to see why Daemon Manager is failing to start.

OK, I will ask my TAC contact for the tool.

You need to open a service request with TAC to get the patch.
