Sounds good.

The Unidata McIDAS distribution is sent out with grid decoding turned
off by default.  The reason for this is that a LOT of sites simply
don't have the disk space to decode the gridded data.  The fact that
your dmgrid.k is apparently running suggests a different problem,

Your XCD_START.LOG file looks normal.

A listing of process IDs says that grid decoding should proceed:

But there is a problem on your system.  There should only be one pair
of ingetext.k processes (one is the parent of the other); you have
two.  The first thing we need to do is find out why you have two pairs.
Can you supply all of the xcd_run related entries in your LDM pqact.conf

>Sooo, it looks OK to me, so far.  

Yes, the grid setup looks OK.

>I tracked the HRS.SPL file and it appears to be updating as expected.

OK, this shows that the LDM has write permission in the directory
into which GRID files will be created.  What are the REDIRECTions
for GRID* on this system:


>In the McIDAS session the DMGRID is reported active.  


>No data available in the McIDAS sessions!??? 

Did you do a simple Unix 'ls' in the directory in which GRID files
are supposed to be created?  If no, it may be that the files are
being created, but the users' sessions do not have REDIRECTions that
point to the files if not going through the remote ADDE server.  If
users sessions do go through the remote ADDE server, it might be
the case that the ADDE access to the files is incorrect.  Was
this working previously?

>I'm not sure what needs to be fixed. Any thoughts?

Not right off.  I am willing to get on and poke around if you like.
In order to test things out, I would need logins as 'mcidas', 'ldm',
and one of the users that is seeing the problem.

>Soundings/Hodographs do not work under RH 6.2.  They appear to be available
>under RH 7.0. Look real good.

The difference here could be that the session you are running under RH 7
is accessing the RTPTSRC dataset as LOCAL-DATA, and the RH 6.2 sessions
are going through a remote ADDE server setup (i.e., the DATALOC for RTPTSRC
for those sessions are _not_ LOCAL-DATA).  This would be consistent with
what I have found in the UNCA, NIU, and Unidata installations.

>For RH6.2 it appears to be a date related problem, perhaps a library problem.
>In one case today (Feb 9, 2001), The Day offered under the selection menu,

Now, this _is_ weird!

>I had to test this anyway, so I thought I'd send the data along.

I appreciate the input!  Now I am even more eager to get on one of
the systems so I can really see what is happening.  Thanks in
