METAR netcdf in McIDAS



Hello,

I am testing the netcdf metar decoder at my site.
So far, I am able to run:

/usr/local/ldm:>metar2nc -v etc/metar.cdl data/METAR < testdata.wmo

and I get:
/usr/local/ldm/data/METAR
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ldm   staff  16384 Aug  8 13:03 02081707_metar.nc
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ldm   staff  41048 Aug  8 13:03 02081708_metar.nc
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ldm   staff  35199 Aug  8 08:58 metarLog.10636.log
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ldm   staff    754 Aug  8 08:58 metar.lst
-rw-rw-r-- 1 ldm   staff      0 Aug  8 10:12 rawmetars.11347.nc 

We do not run XCD.
I have spent some time trying to find the missing link. 
Which is how to make these metar.nc files available to
the McIDAS ADDE server. 
Which DSSERVE command do I have to issue?

With:
DSSERVE ADD GTS/METAR NCDF TYPE=POINT 
DIRFILE='/usr/local/ldm/data/METAR/*_metar.nc'
INFO=NCDF_PNT.CFG

I get:
PTLIST
GTS/METAR.1                                                              
PTLIST: Unable to read parameter labels from server
 
PTLIST GTS/METAR FORM=FILE 1

Pepo - 

Try putting an explicit path in the INFO= keyword in your DSSERVE
command.  I tried INFO=NCDF_PNT.CFG and got the same error that you are
seeing, but when I tried INFO=/home/beckys/NCDF_PNT.CFG, everything
seemed to work fine.
