I recently upgraded a BM38SP3 server running on NW51SP8 to BM38SP4.
While things appear to work, it is continually filling the console log
and screen with the following error messages every few minutes. Note
that the tree name is MMST. I did not find anything directly related in
the TIDs. I do plan on upgrading the base server to NW65, however want
everything else running properly before trying anything like that.
Anyone got a clue as to what is happening here?
