Karthik,

>Karthik Once again. Could I proceed with some activites ( towards my

The LDM will not run as it should until the system admin step I told
you about in a previous email.

This will only take him a couple of minutes to do.

>So, can i procedd with some other activities to link 
>my LDM server and the systems with IDV on it?

If I understand what you want to do correctly, you want to setup:

1) data ingestion on the LDM side
2) decoding of the data into McIDAS formats
3) McIDAS ADDE datasets that both McIDAS and IDV can then access

You could do the setup steps for 2) and 3) before 1) is finished,
but it would be easier to setup the ingestion, filing, decoding,
and dataset definitions after the sysadmin is finished.  The reason
for this is that it is useful to test things out as things are
added to make sure that everything is working before proceeding
to the next step.

The list of steps to get data ingestion and decoding into McIDAS
are detailed in the McIDAS web pages.  I would much rather not have
to distil those pages into an email since it would be replicating
information that is already readily available.

Probably the quickest way to get you up and running is for me to do
all three steps listed above.  I am willing to do this after your
system administrator is finished with the small jobs he has to perform
to set things up.

If you want me to do this, I will need current passwords for the mcidas
and ldm users (they seem to change).

>Thanks a lot.

No worries.

Tom

Thank you Tom ,

I will wait for our admin to be done and then i will follow up with 
the steps that you have mentioned. In case of necessity, you may be 
bombarded with my mail tomorrow as soon as my admin is done.

I really appreciate your support.

Thanks

Karthik.
