You are still able to get data from adde.ucar.edu because McIDAS caches an IP address when the user sets up pointing to an ADDE server (via a DATALOC ADD group server). We need to decomission the machine that was known as adde.ucar.edu, so I am asking that you follow the instructions in the announcement I sent to the mcidas-x and ldm-users email list a several weeks ago: Users of the McIDAS ADDE server adde.ucar.edu: We have transitioned the machine known as adde.ucar.edu (aka motherlode.ucar.edu) from Sun Enterprise E420 to SunFire 480 hardware. The machine has also been moved from the NCAR machine room to the Unidata offices at Foothills Lab #4. Because of the relocation of adde.ucar.edu, the IP address has changed from 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11. This change coupled with McIDAS' cache of ADDE server IP addresses in its client routing table requires the following steps be undertaken by sites accessing data from the ADDE server adde.ucar.edu: <login as the user 'mcidas'> cd $MCDATA dataloc.k HOST If you have cron-initiated scripts run from an account other than 'mcidas' that access adde.ucar.edu: <login as the user running the cron-initiated scripts> cd $MCDATA dataloc.k HOST 'DATALOC HOST' will force McIDAS to update its client routing table (pointed at through $MCTABLE_WRITE) cache of IP address for all hosts. Please follow the above procedures as soon as you are able. ADDE access to the old adde.ucar.edu machine (IP address 18.104.22.168) will begin failing at the beginning of the week of November 7. Thanks in advance for your prompt attention in this matter! Please send any questions/comments regarding the above procedure to Unidata User Support <address@hidden>.
