>From: "Anderson, Alan C. " <address@hidden> >Organization: St. Cloud State >Keywords: 200402182057.i1IKvTrV011544 McIDAS-X setup Hi Alan, >Thanks for the analysis. I figured it was something rather simple on >my end. No worries. It is the simple stuff that really trips us up most of the time. >After your message a couple of weeks back about the clock time, I >decided to change the system clock to UTC and I messed up. I know >that I also need to run ntp or something similar to maintain it. We use ntpdate run out of cron about every 15 minutes. ntpd can be run of course as well (but not at the same time as ntpdate) >I notice that DATALOC LIST RTPTSRC shows LOCAL DATA. I will want >this to be available from other terminals so will need to change it >to full host name. I changed this when I logged onto cyclone this morning. You can change it back to cyclone.stcloudstate.edu when you get the chance. By the sway, the DATALOC setting for a user will not have any effect on the running of the remote interface that is setup. You could leave the DATALOC to LOCAL-DATA for 'mcidas' and everything would keep working fine. >The log file problem was also simple. I had used the entry shown in >the LDM Preinstall material on the web, copied the line just as >written: local0.debug /usr/local/ldm/logs/ldmd.log > >After checking, restarting syslogd and still no log file, I put in >tabs after local0.debug and then it worked. I know that tabs must >sometimes be used and that spaces will not work but did not think of >that when it was written. Yes, tabs are required on some system, but not on others. This makes it hard to advise folks when they run more than one OS. >So, except to change the DATALOC listing for RTPTSRC I think it is >ready. I will check my access from the other terminals that cyclone >will serve and then we will be able to turn off waldo. Waldo has >been a very reliable machine. A Gateway pc running Solaris v 7 for >intel, We have never had any hardware failures. I think it has run >for 5 years or more. That is good service from a PC. >Now I have another question regarding another new machine. We just >received a Sunfire dual processor server with 2 SCSI disks each >about 70 Gb. I am not sure what the Ram is, I think about 10 >Gb. Sounds great. atm.geo.nsf.gov is a Sunfire 280R, and it is feeding close to 100 downstream LDMs at the moment. >What suggestions do you or others (Mike S. ? ) have about how we >should partition the disks and set up file systems. In the past, >based on comments from Mike, I have just made one large file system >on / (except for swap). On cyclone, which also has 2 disks, >I created the root fs on one disk and put /var/data ... on the >other. I will send this to Mike for his expert advice. >The OS Solaris 9 is preinstalled, but I suspect the initial file >system set up is not what will serve us the best. We will use this >machine like cyclone, to serve data via ADDE to our other terminals >and to run the McIDAS sessions for a number of SUNRAY terminals . >Our initial results doing this on cyclone have been good. The >SUNRAY terminals are a small client device from Sun and they display >sessions that are run on the server. OK. >Thanks Tom Glad to help when I can...
