No valid ephemeris files found.

It seems that many MODIS files being processed today are having trouble finding eph files (both reprocessing and real time):

eg a sample LogReport shows:
<h2>Ocean Biology Distributed Active Archive Center (OB.DAAC)</h2>
<blockquote>We are sorry, but an error has occurred. ) in ephemeris file header (expected EOSPM1).

PGS_EPH_getEphemHeaders():PGSEPH_E_NO_SC_EPHEM_FILE:44547
No valid ephemeris files found.


And my script returns this without a eph2:
$_: att1=/shares/cms_optics/apps/seadas/seadas-7.5.3/ocssw/var/anc/2021/338/PM1ATTNR.P2021338.1600.003

Real-time returns this:

brock,
We had a server issue that is likely the cause of your woe. We're mostly back in business...All I can suggest is try again.

Sean,

I found some more HTML anc files. I replaced them, and all jobs are processing again.

Cheers,
B
