umui job xfuzb

Reported by: wx019276 Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: hadgem3, umui, fcm, start dumps
Cc: Platform: HECToR
UM Version: 7.6


Hi I am trying to set up a coupled run. I have copied the job xfuzb. When I do check set up I get the error
Path Name Error in window atmos_InFiles_PAncil_LSH
Variable: APATH

→ Model Selection

→ Atmosphere

→ Ancillary and input data files

→ Climatologies & potential climatologies

→ Large Scale Hydrology fields

If I try submitting the job I get the error
NDS_MAIN: Calling Extract …
/home/wx019276/umui_jobs/xiuxa/NDS_EXTR_SCR[20]: username: cannot open [No such file or directory]
NDS_MAIN: Extract failed
NDS_MAIN stopped with return code 1

Would be grateful if you could point out what I am doing wrong or what I need to change.

Many thanks,

  • UM Version changed from <select version> to 7.6

Hi Ruth,

In UMUI window FCM Configuration → FCM Extract directories and output levels you need to set the Target machine root extract directory (UM_ROUTDIR). I.e. change <username> to be your HECToR userid.

Hi Ros,

Thanks, the job has now submitted ok and the extracts have worked fine.

I still have the error in the check setup relating to the ancil files for the large scale hydrology - is this likely to cause a crash when actually running?

Also I am hoping to modify some start dumps, once I have got it running… The job I have start dumps for is from ajtzr which is UM vn7.7 and the job I have copied is vn7.6 since this vn7.7 isn't available on hector. Do you know if having these start dumps from a different version will cause a problem?

Many thanks for your help,

Hi Ruth,

There shouldn't be a problem using a start dump from 7.7 in a 7.6 job. The issue will be if the scientific configurations in the jobs differ, and then you may need to use the reconfiguration to ensure you have the correct fields included in the dump.

To answer your other question I get the same check setup error in my job, which the standard job is based on. And looking at the leave file for the reconfiguration it does appear that the model manages to read in the large scale hydrology files. So I'd tentatively suggest it's OK to ignore.
