GFS: "Permission denied" when getting GRIB data

Post by beowrf » Wed May 20, 2015 7:57 am

Dear all,

I never have any problems when getting Robert's PGRB datasets. However, if his server fails and I have to download the entire gfs-bunch, I often get following message:

Code: Select all

Initiating FTP process to ftp.ncep.noaa.gov
              -> Attempting to acquire /pub/data/nccf/com/gfs/prod/gfs.2015052000/gfs.t00z.pgrb2.0p25.f000  Permission denied.
or

              ...
The only server working is weather.noaa.gov.

The strange thing: This only happens on a machine with Open SuSE, and only on the old version of WRF-EMS (3.1.1).

Does anybody have a hint what could be wrong here?

Best regards,

Beowrf

This message is standard error output when one tries to execute nonexecutable file on linux. I have no clue what's going on, but that fact might get you idea where to search for problem? Of course it might not be related to that at all, especially if sometimes work, sometimes doesn't...

Hi Ivan,

oh, this is a local permission problem! I thought that my user account was rejected on the servers.

Makes more sense now :-)

Thanks for the hint!

Pretty much sure that is not the case :)
