[McIDAS #GVB-850234]: Need help!



Hi Gilbert,

I just noticed that the file in which ADDE accesses are logged on 
weather.admin.niu.edu
had strange ownership information:

weather-niu Mci-6$ ls -alt SERVER.LOG
-rw-r--r-- 1 516 users 45056 2007-04-23 18:58 SERVER.LOG

It appears as if the UID for 'mcadde' was changed at some point, because it is 
now:

weather-niu Mci-10$ id mcadde
uid=530(mcadde) gid=100(users) groups=100(users)

So, I changed the ownership to mcadde:users:

weather-niu Mci-12$ su
Password:
address@hidden workdata]# chown mcadde:users SERVER.LOG
address@hidden workdata]# exit
exit

and now ADDE access to the server is being correctly logged:

weather-niu Mci-16$ ls -alt SERVER.LOG
-rw-r--r-- 1 mcadde users 48640 2007-08-24 16:34 SERVER.LOG

So, your problem was twofold:

- 'mcadde' did not have write permission in ~mcidas/workdata
- the existing copy of SERVER.LOG, ~mcidas/workdata/SERVER.LOG, was
  not writable

All should be well now.


Cheers,

Tom
