Re: [las_users] LAS V8.2 installation and TMAP error.

Hi Rosanna,
It looks as if the environment variables are set correctly in the Ferret installation, but that somehow this didn't get into the LAS configuration in the LAS installation. Look in the file


There's an <environment> section, where the Ferret environment variables are listed.  These should contain the contents of FER_DATA, etc.  There's an example here,


You could re-run the configure script for LAS, and answer "no" to this question:
You already have a config file for your Ferret backend environment.
Do you want to use this file? [yes]
This will replace FerretBackendConfig.xml with a new file that contains the current settings for the Ferret environment variables.  (Also answer "no" to the next question, Do you want to install the example data set configuration? , and the configure process will keep the dataset configuration that you already have.)

Hello Roland,

So we’ve re-followed instructions to re-install FERRET and LAS.
Continues to return for example:

**TMAP ERR: non-existent or not on line
             Searched $FER_DESCR and $FER_DATA for ocean_atlas_subset(.nc ,.cdf,.des)
SET DATA "ocean_atlas_subset"
Please see our installation notes below.. Are we missing something during the install?  It looks like the Environment variables were set accordingly.. But the Server is not seeing it.
My command line check:

[root@opendap-uat ferret]# ferret

yes? SET DATA "ocean_atlas_subset"

yes? show data/all

You can test your F-TDS setup by running the LASTest suite.

To run the tests run these commands.

cd test/LASTest

ant lastest -Df=1

You must restart your Tomcat server.

We've created some scripts to help you do that.  See: stopserver.sh, startserver.sh and rebootserver.sh
