Has anyone found a solution? I saw that HQ was working on the problem, but that was a few months ago. We are still having the problem at our stake machine.
From what I can tell, if I request a refresh on All Membership Records (or even just a ward we know we are having a problem with) MLS does not seem to do anything special. I do see two extra files sent: mbrmrchg-USA/xxxxxxx.403 and mls2cdol/xxxxxxx.yyyyyyyyyyyyy. The xxxxxxx is our stake unit number and the yyyyyyyyyyyyy was some long number. I didn't want to include them in case of sensitive information. On DSL, the send/receive takes about 10 seconds when trying to perform a full refresh. On a normal send/receive, it takes about 5 seconds. I don't think I am getting the membership refresh I am requesting as 10 seconds seem a bit low for 1.5Mbps.
I was hoping that MLS 3.2.1 would fix the issues. I even went around to verify all wards have the correct version.
I want to express how frustrating it is for the Stake Presidency when they can not have a complete stake membership list.
