Mike, The FILE entries should use the "-close" option (i.e., "FILE<tab>-close ...") to ensure that every just-created file is completely available to be transferred. When executed by an EXEC entry, the file-transfer script won't have a controlling terminal because the LDM system runs as a daemon -- so the diagnostic "print" statements won't work. You should modify the script so that it logs to the system logging daemon or to a log file -- and then view the messages to determine the cause of the problem. Just FYI, after modifying the pqact(1) configuration-file, "pqact.conf", you can simply execute the command "ldmadmin pqactHUP" to have all pqact(1) processes re-read their configuration-files rather than use the slower command "ldmadmin restart". Also FYI, it might be possible to combine the two actions (FILE-ing and EXEC-ing) into a single PIPE entry (e.g., "PIPE<tab>-close new_script LMRFCForecast %Y%m%d%H%M"). "new_script" would be an "LDM decoder" that reads the data-product from its standard input stream and process it accordingly. Information on LDM decoders can be found at <http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/ldm/ldm-current/basics/programs.html#decoders>. Good luck.
