You are welcome. >Machine name is atmos.uprm.edu (22.214.171.124) OK. I logged on and did the following: <as user 'mcidas'> o updated McIDAS to the latest addendum version (7.705) o (after 'ldm' created /var/data/mcidas and made it read/write/executable by 'mcidas'): o copied ~mcidas/data/SCHEMA to /var/data/mcidas o copied ~mcidas/data/SYSKEY.TAB to /var/data/mcidas o copied ~mcidas/workdata/ROUTE./SYS to /var/data/mcidas o defined the string XCDDATA in McIDAS: cd ~mcidas/workdata te.k XCDDATA \"/var/data/mcidas o ran XCD decoding setup BATCH files: cd ~mcidas/workdata batch.k XCD.BAT batch.k XCDDEC.BAT <as user 'ldm'> o created the directory /var/data/mcidas and changed its read/write permissions to allow everyone in 'ldm's group to read/write/execute o copied the ldm-mcidas decoders from the ~mcidas/ldm-mcidas-7.6.4/bin directory to ~ldm/decoders o edited ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf to: o start McIDAS XCD decoding on LDM startup o changed data requests to decrease what you were asking for from Florida State (pluto.met.fsu.edu); what you were asking for was everything that was possible in the IDD, and I don't believe that your network connection is good enough to support that volume of data. We can revisit this as soon as everything done so far is noted to work correctly. o edited ~ldm/etc/pqact.conf to: o comment out filing action you had o add action for decoding Unidata-Wisconsin imagery o adde actions for running McIDAS XCD decoders o edited ~ldm/bin/ldmadin to: increase the size of the queue used by the LDM o stopped the LDM o deleted the LDM queue: ldmadmin delqueue o made the new LDM queue: ldmadmin mkqueue o setup McIDAS data file scouring by: o copy ~mcidas/workdata/mcscour.sh to ~ldm/decoders o add a crontab entry to run ~ldm/decoders/mcscour.sh o copied ~mcidas/bin/xcd_run to ~ldm/decoders; this is needed since this script is used to start XCD routines o edited ~ldm/decoders: xcd_run, batch.k, mcscour.sh, and uwgrid.sh to set PATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH variables o restarted the LDM What remains to be done by you as 'root' is: o change the HOME directory of 'mcadde' to be /home/mcidas o change the default shell for 'mcadde' to be /bin/false o remove the password for 'mcadde' The results of these three things will be an /etc/passwd entry for 'mcadde' of: mcadde:x:1007:100:,,,:/home/mcidas:/bin/false The changes will, of course, have to be made by 'root' and reflected in the shadow password file. The changes will allow the ADDE remote server to be used from your machine; everything else needed to do this appears to be setup correctly. Also, you will have to contact Dave Knight: address@hidden at Suny Albany to inform him of this machines full name: atmos.uprm.edu, 126.96.36.199 so he can enable your getting the NLDN lightning data. Right now, access is being denied by his LDM machine: <ldmd.log entry> Jul 10 05:58:38 atmos striker: FEEDME(striker.atmos.albany.edu): 7: Access denied by remote server One last comment. I see that this machine is running setiathome. Intersting, but it is taking up a large fraction of the machine's CPU (even though its execution is "nice"d: <output from top> 5947 root 19 19 16256 15M 780 R N 92.6 6.3 4578m setiathome I'll worry about setting up your getting the NEXRAD imagery for the Puerto Rico radar sometime later today.
