The error you report implies that your MCPATH includes the /home/disk/data/mcidas directory, and that a user other than yourself created a RESOLV.SRV in that directory, AND you do not have write permission for it. What is the setting of MCPATH in your Unix login? The recommendation is that the first directory in each non-'mcidas' user's MCPATH be ~/mcidas/data. This directory should be owned by you, so it should be writable. If you do have ~/mcidas/data as your first MCPATH directory, and if it is writable by you, and McIDAS is still trying to write to an existing copy of RESOLV.SRV in /home/disk/data/mcidas, then do the following to force McIDAS to look for RESOLV.SRV in a directory you have write permission to: REDIRECT ADD RESOLV.SRV "/home/ovens/mcidas/data (assuming that your HOME directory is /home/ovens; if it is not, adjust the path you are specifying). After setting this REDIRECTion, McIDAS should look for (i.e., read and write) RESOLV.SRV in your ~/mcidas/data directory, and so the DSSERVE command should work. >or is there another way to do this with environment variables >or something? No. DSSERVE is simply writing a file that is then read when a local dataset needs to be defined/resolved.
