It can be the same copy run twice. That would not work, as only one process can use the ports being used by LMS. I always have Activity Monitor running on my LMS server to show what is happening within the system at any time. Only one instance of Perl is shown running. That's not real-time

Perl does not install with LMS - a version of Perl is included as part of OS. LMS provides its some of required CPAN libraries. If you upgraded the OS from say 10.x.x to 10.12.* - I guess there is a possibility of some sort of incompatibility. If you upgraded from 10.12.x to 10.12.y - I'd guess
