How do you mean that? We're doing about 2600+ (still changing devices
to use tacacs+) with 3.1 and Ciscoworks. The only thing we where
hitting where some limitations in 3.0 and a replication bug in 3.1. The
pre-releases of 3.1.2 where working fine in the testlab and didn't had
the replication bug anymore. We're now testing 3.2 and that one looks
to handle replication better then 3.1.

Hopefully you can tell me more, because the only thing 3.1 sometimes
has is that it replicates a buggy database but we weren't able to
reproduce that one.
