Dan,

Third time is _supposed_ to be the charm, not the bane :-)

OK.

This is so strange that it almost sounds like an OS problem.

I am running on my OSF/1 box right now, and seeing no problems.  Since
I am actually logged into the DEC from my AIX workstation and am
running McIDAS with my display set to the AIX machine, I may not be
exercising something that you are seeing.  I will attempt to run from
the console to make sure that I am not fooling myself here.

In reference to the second of your previous emails, I am running DF
with absolutely no problems.

OK, good.

>the statdisp seems to indicate that the decoders

>and the time changes.

OK.

>the redirect listing is pointing to the correct place

Good.

Just as a sanity check, lets make sure that your are actually looking
on your machine for the data:

DSSERVE LIST RTIMAGES

If this comes back looking good, then run:

DSINFO IMAGE RTIMAGES

If this comes back looking good, then run:

If the DSSERVE listing is empty, then the datasets have not been setup
on your machine yet, and you would expect the failures you are seeing.
In this case, you need to:

<login as 'mcidas'>
cd data
cp DSSERVE.BAT LSSERVE.BAT
<edit LSSERVE.BAT and make any changes IF necessary (like to remove/comment
out setting up of datasets that you will not have (e.g., WNOWRAD, WNEXRAD,
etc.)>
cd ~/workdata
batch.k LSSERVE.BAT

The routing table shows you want data has been ingested and decoded.  After
getting he ingest/decode setup, if you havn't already done so, you need
to setup the ADDE datasets so that the ADDE routines like IMGLIST, IMGDISP,
SFCPLOT, etc. can find the data.

This agrees with the routing table listing.

>Can you point me in a direction - at this stage I'm lost.

I think we have two problems:

o ADDE datasets need to be defined
o there may be some weird problem with your build that I will need a logon
  to figure out

Thanks!

Sounds good.

Hopefully, you are reading email periodically this weekend.  If so,
maybe I can get that login and poke around a bit.

This one seems to be a problem on the USU network side,
it seem that when I get this error, is during the times that
they are in labs, and the labs feed from the same server,
- or they are doing a backup - seems like a load issue - 
with a missing packet ( can't decode argument error ).

I will keep checking is out - and let you know
