Hi...

I'm trying to get a basic thredds server going using a simple configuration but am having trouble. Here's my $tomcat_home/content/thredds/catalog.xml:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <catalog name="PSU Meteorology Department Data Archives"

xmlns="http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/namespaces/thredds/InvCatalog/v1.0";
         xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink";>

<service name="Test" serviceType="HTTPServer" base="" />
<datasetScan name="Model Data" path="model_archive" scanDir="/data/test/" />


</catalog>


You need to tell datasetScan which service to use:

<datasetScan name="Model Data" path="model_archive" scanDir="/data/test/"


     <metadata inherited="true">
       <serviceName>Test</serviceName>
     </metadata>
  </datasetScan>


Okay, I stuck the "metadata" section you show above into my file and restarted tomcat, but it's still failing with the same errors. Any other ideas? I'm using tomcat 5.0.28 and j2sdk1.4.2_10. Also, I tried running the catalog.xml file without the "service name" and "dataseetScan" elements (i.e. essentially empty file) for testing, and the catalog.html page then comes up properly, although empty (as would be expected).

                            Thanks.

What I would do next is to download and run the development version (3.3), 
which will give you an error message instead of throwing an exception. A number 
of other bugs are fixed and we are on the verge of making it the stable release.

get latest thredds.war from 
http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/THREDDS/tech/index.html#TDS

also, get Remote Management working by following this page:

 http://motherlode.ucar.edu:8080/thredds/docs/RemoteManagement.html

there are various debugging things that will help. If you give us a password, 
we can help you debug remotely. (but i will be gone all next week).

In $tomcat_home/logs/catalina.out, I see:

http://server.meteo.psu.edu:8080/thredds/catalog.html gives:

Catalog http://server.meteo.psu.edu:8080/thredds/catalog.xml has fatal errors:
----Catalog Validation version 1.0.01


**Fatal: InvCatalogFactory.readXML failed

One question I have is whether I need some other server running besides tomcat/thredds to get this going (e.g. apache or DODS)...? I guess I'm just expecting thredds to list the data files when I give it the above catalog.xml file... What am I doing wrong?
