[kepler-dev] metacat question

It looks like your EcoGrid authentication service is not finding your  
Metacat instance.  Is "http://path/to/myServer:8080/knb/metacat"  
literally returned in the error, or did you replace your server name  
to protect it's location when sending to the list?  That url needs to  
be correct (of course).

You can test the Metacat portion of your new AuthInterface with a  
simple request to the servlet:

The EcoGrid portion looks up the Metacat URL from a metacat.properties  
file (different from the main metacat.properties file).  This one is  
in your_context/WEB-INF/classes directory and should have only one  
line that specifies the metacatURL.  This is created and packaged as  
part of the EcoGrid build.

hope that points you in a good direction
