Pathworks 6.1 Problem on Alpha

Hi All,
I'm in the process of building a mixed architecture VMS Cluster for our DR site. VMS is being would down here. I'm constrained to building the cluster as close as possible to what we're running as a Production.

I'm trying to get Pathworks 6.1 on an Alpha running VMS 7.2-2 to connect to our NT domain to permit authentication.
This works for our Production site.
I'm familiar with the Pathworks config options.
I have got the Server to talk and authenticate to the Domain, but only once.
When I start Pathworks 8 processes fire up. After about 30-60 seconds this has been reduced to 4.
It seems the PWRK$LMSRV Process is dying and taking the others with it.
Anyone encountered similar?
A DMP File has also been created, but I'm not too sure of the best way to review it. It's been too long since I did serious stuff on a VMS System.!
The following is from the Log.

Re: Pathworks 6.1 Problem on Alpha


If you have disk quotas on the system disk, try turning them off and (re?)running PWRK$CONFIG.

If that doesn't work, please log a case.

Thanks for the reply.
I removed Pathworks 6.1 and installed Advanced Server instead.
That works fine and I've got Authentication working with the AD Domain so that will do me.
