Okay. What this means is that mcidas is finding a copy of RESOLV.SRV but that the ADDE server (mcadde) isn't. From the mcidas account, run DMAP RESOLV.SRV and see where it is located. For the ADDE server, it should be located in the directory pointed to by the MCDATA environment variable in .mcenv. Check to make sure .mcenv is correct. >> >> I just pointed my RTGRIDS at windfall and there are not datasets >> listed for that group.

So is the idea that each time you >upgrade you should re-setup the ADDE server? Well, since you are using a "non-standard" McIDAS setup (using the runtime cutover idea) then the answer is yes. In general, these files will not get overwritten by an installation.

See where RESOLV.SRV is located. Since you copied over ADDESITE.TXT, you could probably just copy RESOLV.SRV over to /home/mcidas/uvaworkdata instead of running through steps 2-4. >> The problem is that the ADDE data sets were not set up correctly >> (by running LSSERVE.BAT and LOCDATA.BAT), so when you made the > > Scary.

So, the bottom line is to find out were RESOLV.SRV is located. It could be that it is being found in /home/mcidas/data and that both mcidas and your account are finding it there. Move it to the directory pointed to by the MCDATA environment variable in .mcenv. Don
