Most likely it is the write permission on SCHEMA. The fact that the LSCHE UPPR returns LSCHE: DONE without listing out the schema is telling us that the schema did not actually get registered. The most likely way for this to happen is that the copy of SCHEMA that you are attempting to write into has read/write permissions set so that 'mcidas', 'mcadde', and 'ldm' can write into it, but other users (world) can not. >I tried to copy /home/mcidas/data/SCHEMA into /home/ajw7g/mcidas/data, >but afterwards it would still not list the UPPR schema. Why is that? That is probably because you have a REDIRECTion in your session that still points to the copy of SCHEMA that was not writable. Since you are copying SCHEMA to your own McIDAS working directory, the REDIRECTion should be '.': REDIRECT ADD SCHEMA . >Thanks, > >Tony Wimmers >University of Virginia Tom Yoksas
