RStudio Server: ncdf4 error "R_nc4_open" not available for .C() for package "ncdf4"

Hi everyone,

I've encountered a similar problem as in this topic (https://support.rstudio.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115009083388-Rstudio-1-1-372-and-ncdf4-error-R-nc4-open-not-available-for-C-for-package-ncdf4).

In short, I'm trying to open a NetCDF file using the ncdf4-package which works perfectly on the desktop version of RStudio on my laptop, but gives me the following error message if I use nc_open() in the RStudio Server of my organization:

Error in .C("R_nc4_open", as.character(filename), as.integer(rv$cmode), :
"R_nc4_open" not available for .C() for package "ncdf4"

Does anyone know a solution/work around to get nc_open/ncdf4 to work on the RStudio Server?

Below is my session info. Thanks a lot for the help!
