Gilbert,

>Yep. I am now getting NEXRAD stuff off of my machine, instead of
>adde.ucar.edu like I had before. What do I need to do to get that back?

Since the dataset names are the same on your machine and adde.ucar.edu,
you have to issue a DATALOC to switch between the two:

-- access RTNEXRAD from adde.ucar.edu --
DATALOC ADD RTNEXRAD adde.ucar.edu

-- access RTNEXRAD from weather.admin.niu.edu --
DATALOC ADD RTNEXRAD weather.admin.niu.edu

If you want to be able to access some stations from your machine and others
from adde.ucar.edu, you will need to setup a dataset for the NEXRAD products
on your machine using a different name than the one used on adde.ucar.edu.
This is what I alluded to in an earlier email.  This is easy to do, but
you will have to remember which dataset is where.

There are a couple of ways you can go about creating a dataset of a
different name on weather:

o run a set of DSSERVE commands to setup the dataset

o change the name of the RTNEXRAD dataset directly

You would do the steps for either option as the user 'mcidas'

For the first option, I would:

cd ~mcidas/data
cp DSSERVE.BAT NIUNEXR.BAT
<edit NIUNEXR.BAT and:
 o remove all DSSERVE lines that do not relate to NEXRAD data>
 o change the dataset group name for the remaining DSSERVE lines
   to something other than RTNEXRAD
 o change the INFO= entry from NNEXRAD.CFG to NIUNEXR.CFG (to match
   the current setup on weather)
cd ~mcidas/workdata
batch.k NIUNEXR.BAT

For the second option, I would:

cd ~mcidas/workdata
<edit RESOLV.SRV (use a wide screen for your editor) and:

o change all of the references to RTNEXRAD to whatever you want to call
  your local dataset.  For example,

change:

N1=RTNEXRAD, ...

to:

N1=NIUNEXR, ...


NOTES:

1) the length of the group portion of the dataset you decide to create
   MUST be less than or equal to 8 characters  (this sucks, but...)

2) if you decide to edit RESOLV.SRV, be _very_ careful to not change
   anything except RTNEXRAD to your dataset group name.  Commas are
   very important including the trailing one on each line!

Is this what you were looking for?

OK. That is what I will do (makes life easy).

Yes it was. Thanks!!! Also, tell others I do have all the BREF1 data, but
only surrounding sites have a complete compliment of data. When I get a
fatter pipeline into the U, and a larger disk drive this fall, then we'll
suck in more!

Thanks again, and have a great weekend!
