[IDD #KUL-673349]: Server Name Change

Hi Shawn,

'ldmadmin watch' shows what is being received in the local LDM queue.
If the watch shows that you are receiving the datafeed specified, then
yes, you should be able to process that data.  This would be done by
creating one or more pattern-action file actions that would do something
with the data.

Changing the name of the local LDM machine should have nothing to
do with the ability to process the data that is being received.  If you
send us the pattern-action file(s) that have the actions that are not
working, we can take a look to see if there is anything obviously

It could be that the COSMIC folks had setup something like a blanket
ALLOW for machines in the acom.ucar.edu or ucar.edu subnets.  This would
account for you not having to contact them when you changed the name of
your machine, but it stayed on the same subnet.
