[McIDAS #XRR-599672]: Configuring scouring of McIDAS data

Hi Samuel,

Been there; done that :-)

No need to fill silly.   It is very often the case that it becomes impossible
to see something after looking at the problem too long.

Something you said in an email yesterday:

  "I know I ran mcxconfig. Several times in fact."

leads me to believe that the first time you ran mcxconfig, you did not specify
that you wanted to process model data.  This invocation would likely have
created the ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf entries that I found yesterday afternoon.
A subsequent run of mcxconfig where you did specify that you wanted to process
model data resulted in new, updated ldmd.conf entries that were not used
in replacement to the original ones even though the newly created pqact.conf
files, pqact.conf_mcidasA and pqact.conf_mcidasB, were.  This scenario would
explain the missing reference to HRS (and/or NGRID) in ldmd.conf actions.

I just wanted to make sure to point out that it is a step that needs to be
addressed in the next couple of days (before the set of MDXX files reaches
10 for each type of data).

No worries.  Again, I've been through the "can's see the forest for the trees"
scenario many, many times.  All it usually takes is someone looking over one's
shoulder to do a reset.

One thing in regards to PUBLIC.SRV:

PUBLIC.SRV was created for the IDV use of the ADDE remote server capability.
The idea is to copy RESOLV.SRV to PUBLIC.SRV (which you did), AND to delete
any datasets listed in PUBLIC.SRV that you do not want exposed to remote
users (e.g., test datasets, etc.).
