#1198 closed error (fixed)

failed run with UKCA standard job to ARCHER

Reported by: s1251469 Owned by: luke
Component: UM Model Keywords: ukca,archer
Cc: Platform: Other
UM Version: 7.3



I have submitted a job (xjhxd) based on the release job (xfvfd). I find it fails very early on in the run.

I'm not sure if it is not making or finding some files it needs. Maybe a directory is correctly set. Can't see anything wrong with that though.

I would be grateful if someone could take a look at the error when they have a moment to see if it's familiar.

kind regards,

Hi Declan,

Could you make your /home directory readable by me on ARCHER? You need to

cd ~
cd ../
chmod a+rx s1251469

Once you've done this I can read your output files.

sorry. done.

Hi Declan,

Could you try moving your .profile to something else (e.g. .profile.old) and copy my .profile

cp ~luke/.profile .

and then try again and let me know how you get on?

thankyou. that looks to be working better. It has created more of the files I expected to see. I'll let you know when the run has completed.

Was it that my .profile was set to vn8.2? or something more complicated?

That has finished running and seems to have worked a treat.

Thankyou very much for all your help.

Hi Declan,

I'm glad it's working.

I think it's to do with the use of modules and a particular hand-edit in the UKCA jobs, which are hang-ups from the testing period. You could see if this works by

  1. Using your old .profile, although change the version to vn7.3
  2. Turning off the ~ros/umui_jobs/hand-edits/archer/cce-7.3.ed hand-edit

I don't think that setting it to vn8.2 makes much of a difference, although it may have. It is certainly possible to run vn8.2/4 jobs and set the version to vn7.3 in the profile (as this is how I run usually!).

I have tested the changes above, and they work. I'm sorry for the problems. You might want to remove the use of modules and the hand-edit for your future runs. Let me know if you have any more problems.
