20051109: adde.ucar.edu IP address changed; action needed

Hi Jerry and Russ,

I am not sure who to send the following note to at SSEC, so I thought
you might be able to help.

Several weeks ago I sent a note to the Unidata-maintained mcidas-x and
ldm-users email lists announcing that the machine known as
adde.ucar.edu (aka motherlode.ucar.edu) had been changed to new
hardware.  McIDAS users that are accessing the data need to run a
'DATALOC HOST' to update the client routing table pointed to by
$MCTABLE_WRITE.  One machine at SSEC:

miranda.ssec.wisc.edu (128.104.110.29)

continues to access the ADDE server on the old adde.ucar.edu probably
because of McIDAS IP caching.   Could you help figure out who setup a
McIDAS process on miranda so I can get the information to him/her?

Thanks!

Here is the original message I sent out the the Unidata-maintained
mcidas-x and ldm-users email lists:

  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 128.117.15.119 to 128.117.114.119.  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 128.117.15.119)
  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>.

Cheers,

Tom

Hi Jerry,

re: SSEC machine still hitting old adde.ucar.edu
>That is Sanjay Limaye's machine ... I'll shoot him an email.

Thanks!

Cheers,
