Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
--- Monica


1) TSB is continuing to look into the GOES imagery retrieval code, and will  
provide TAFB with proper instructions and guidance on if there is a certain  
order that images need to be retrieved in for future reference.
1) HSU had issues with editing and transmitting the Atlantic GTWO  
yesterday. To resolve this, Doug Gaer restarted the ypbind process on  
nhc-lx-comp01. To help prevent these issues in the future, Doug has changed  
the permissions on the XGTWO VGF files and subdirectories to 666 and 777,  
respectively. According to Matt Sardi, the NIS replacement RFC was only for  
workstations, we will still need to untangle the ypbind/NIS setup on the  
servers which is a much more complicated task to be reserved for after this  
season is over.

2) TSB is continuing to investigate the dropouts on the satellite strip  
images available on the www2. After an initial look at the code, signs  
point to this development code is using only the local dish GOES-E feeds  
and not connected to the official satellite pull crons. Therefore,  
significant work may need to be done to modify the scripts to use the  
NESDIS datasets instead of the local data which is subject to the dropouts  
HSU has been seeing. Since this process also needs to be migrated to work  
for GOES-16 in the near future, this item may have to be added to the TSB  
long term development list.

3) HSU cannot print from the Pacific N-AWIPS workstation. TSB and NCO will  

4) TSB and NCO are continuing to experiment with the ASCAT issue on the  
Atlantic NAWIPS workstation. Turns out that he ACAT data displays just fine  
on Unidata's version of 7.4.0, which Doug downloaded and built on on his  
workstation as a test. We think this is likely a build environment vs.  
source code issue, will continue working on this this week. As a  
workaround, Dave Zelinsky set up a remote display in WS7 so you can see the  
ASCAT at that desk.
Other items:
1) The NCEP network issues should be resolved at this time. If you continue  
to see issues connecting to the network please notify TSB and/or the SDM  
2) A GOES-16 ABI calibration scan will be performed on October 5-6, 2017,  
from 1600-0000 UTC in which a 30-second MESO collect will be utilized for 8  
hours over the Baja peninsula. The MESO products generated during this scan  
will be available to users, but neither MESO-1 or MESO-2 will be available  
for request during this time.
