Right.  If the accounts had been setup in the way I requested, the
mcadde account would not allow logins, and its HOME directory would
be the same as the user 'mcidas'.  For some reason, this was not done.

I got your phone mail and was able to login as 'mcadde'.  Getting a
remote ADDE server has progressed a little, but I am once again running
into a disk quota problem on s418:

~/workdata> cp ../data/LOCAL.NAM LWPATH.NAM
cp: LWPATH.NAM: Disc quota exceeded

Apparently, the raise in the quota that allowed me to build and install
McIDAS has been lowered.  Without being able to configure things in the
McIDAS account (i.e., create new files/directories/etc.) I can not
finish until the quotas are once again raised for 'mcidas'.
Furthermore, the ADDE installation will not work if the quotas are
lowered so that no new files can be made.

Another problem is that it appears that there is some sort of a rule
at W Mich that users in the same group can not access each other's
directories.  I say this since:

mcadde, mcidas, and ldm are supposedly in the same group:

~> id mcidas
uid=5453(mcidas) gid=646(ldm)
~> id mcadde
uid=7319(mcadde) gid=646(ldm)
~> id ldm
uid=3081(ldm) gid=646(ldm)

From the mcadde login an ls of ~mcidas will get a premission denied:

~> whoami
~> ls ~mcidas
/home7/ldm/mcidas: Permission denied

and the same is true from the mcidas login of ~mcadde:

~/workdata> whoami
~/workdata> ls ~mcadde
/home7/ldm/mcadde: Permission denied

This becomes important in the operation of the LDM as user 'ldm' since
it will need to access and maniuplate files in the mcidas account.

Can anything be done about this situation?
