Adding Disks in AIPS

Adding Disks in AIPS

 

In order to add disks to your AIPS system, you have to change a few things

- Create new folders for the disks in your $AIPS_ROOT/DATA drive.  Folders should be of the format HOSTNAME_#.  Use the same syntax as folders that currently exist.

- You need to copy the file SPACE from one of your existing data areas to all of the new ones you create. 

- Enter the new disk area into the two files DADEVS.LIST and NETSP.  Follow the syntax of other entries in the files.  Also, each file has instructions included within. 

And that's it.  Now when you run aips and type indisk you will see all of the new data areas that you've created.
