Now, how do I tell McIDAS I made a mistake and want them to look >for the files there? As per the previous email, the process to create an ADDE dataset is to create a file you then edit to set site specific "stuff" like the location and naming of the data files. I created the file for you as ~mcidas/data/NIUNEXRC.BAT. You need to edit the file and change the directory portion of the data file location(s) to match your change in pqact.conf. After making the editing change(s), you need to rerun the BATCH command to make the changes active: cd ~mcidas/workdata batck.k NIUNEXRC.BAT >Also, I just have room for the 1 KM imagery only, >I think. Can I tell the ADDE server that? If you stop ingesting/decoding the 2km N1P and 4km NTP composites, you should tell McIDAS that those datasets no longer exist. You would do this in two places: o comment out the entries in NIUNEXRC.BAT (before running the BATCH invocation above) -- remember that a comment in a McIDAS BATCH file is a line that begins with REM -- o delete the ADDE definitions that are already in place. This is done by executing one command for each dataset group/descriptor that you want to eliminate. Since you want to eliminate the definitions for both the NEXRCOMP/2KN1P-NAT and NEXRCOMP/4KNTP-NAT products, you would execute two commands: cd ~mcidas/workdata dsserve.k DEL NEXRCOMP/2KN1P-NAT dsserve.k DEL NEXRCOMP/4KNTP-NAT After doing this, and assuming you commented out the definitions of these dataset groups in NIUNEXRC.BAT, you would go ahead and redefine the dataset group for the 1 km N0R national composite: cd ~mcidas/workdata batch.k NIUNEXRC.BAT >> After doing the editing, the final step in setting up the ADDE dataset >> is to run the BATCH command on the BATCH file you just created: >> >> <again, as 'mcidas'> >> cd ~/workdata >> batch.k NIUNEXRC.BAT > >I did, and it gave me an error that said it was already looking for it in >the directory where I didn't want the images to go. It gave you an error? This would mean that your editing of the file had a problem. re: data scouring >I already have that taken care of, so this is cool. Good. >Thanks. Looks like one more step to go, and we'll launch this rocket! :-) Right. OK, I jumped onto weather2 and see that you correctly edited ~mcidas/data/NIUNEXRC.BAT. Excellent! So, the "error" you referred to above must be that you are still seeing the definitions for the 2KN1P-NAT and 4KNTP-NAT products. All you have to do is run the 'dsserve.k DEL' commands I showed above to delete those definitions. Tom
