Except that the problem is that the data monitors are seemingly not able to create/update files in ~mcidas/workdata. >I'll change the groups right now. As soon as I saw your message, I recursively changed the group of all files in ~mcidas. This worked for everything except: ~mcidas/mcupdate which is owned by root. While talking about mcupdate, I recommend that you get rid of the following in ~mcidas: mcupdate mcunpack README mcidasx2002.tar.Z mcidas7.8 mcinet7.8.sh src The update procedure for Unidata McIDAS is to FTP the compressed update tar file, mcupdate.tar.Z, into the ~/mcidas<ver>/update directory and run the unpack script, mcunpack, from there. OK, now the bad news. Even though 'mcidas' and 'ldm' both have 'ldm' as their primary group, the XCD data monitors are still not able to create/ update those data files in ~mcidas/workdata. I really don't know what this means at all! Perhaps they both should be in only one account? Perhaps the machine needs a reboot? I don't know why things are not working now. Tom
