The permissions on ~mcidas/workdata are now: drwxrwxrwx 3 mcidas ldm 4096 Oct 22 13:20 workdata/ Shouldn't the 'chmod g+rw' workdata have resulted in drwxrwxr-x ? >What files specifically is it having problems creating? The XCD supervisory routine, startxcd.k, creates an .ERR file for each data monitor (DMSFC.ERR, DMRAOB.ERR, DMMISC.ERR, DMSYN.ERR, DMGRID.ERR). These files keep a log of when the data monitor is restarted by startxcd.k. Also, all data monitors are supposed to write to the file DECOSTAT.DAT. This file is then used by stat.k and statdisp to show the status of each decoder (decoders are subprocesses of data monitors). The GRIB decoder reads/writes the file GRIBDEC.PRO. The contents of this file are the next word in the file HRS.SPL that has data to be decoded. Lastly, the file DCLSTIDX.PTR needs to get written to keep track of the last index file that got written.
