Resubmitting a reconfiguration-only job

Reported by: charlie Owned by: ros
Component: UM Model Keywords:
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 6.6.3



I'm trying to resubmit one of my jobs, after it fell over yesterday. I'm using one of my most recent restart dumps, so at this stage I'm just wanting to submit a reconfiguration-only job (in order to restart it from that dump). I have done this several times before in the last week, and it's worked fine. This time, however, I get the following FCM error when I try to submit:

FCM_MAIN: Submitting umuisubmit_run …
qsub: script file: No such file or directory
FCM_MAIN: Submit failed

Please can you advise?

Sorry to bother you again, but I don't think I ever received a reply to the message above (I have been away off sick for the past 2 weeks, so am only just now catching up on work). Can you help?

Hi Charlie,

Sorry, this slipped through my net. :-(

Have you tried submitting this job again since you got the above error message? I have seen this problem several times before and usually just submitting the job again works fine.

Let me know if you still get the error.

Dear Ros,

Yes, I have just tried submitting the job again, and have got exactly the same error message…

Hi Charlie,

I can't see your directories on ARCHER, please run the following on ARCHER to give us access.

chmod -R g+rX /home/n02/n02/cjrw09
chmod -R g+rX /work/n02/n02/cjrw09

Hi Charlie,

Well I can see what the problem is but I don't currently know what the cause is, I took a copy of your xjric job and just changed the userid and it works fine for me. Looking in your ~/umui_runs/xjric-127132045 directory all the files in there are empty. :-( These files should all be scp'd over from the ~/umui_jobs/xjric directory on PUMA. The files on PUMA are all correct. Just to check a couple of things:

  • Can you confirm you are not being prompted for a password/passphrase at all during the job submission?
  • Are there any other error/information messages either in the UMUI pop-up window or in the terminal window from which you started up the UMUI?

Hi Charlie,

I think I've sussed it…. You have run out of disk space on /home. We have just up'ed your quota, this can take a little time to be implemented by ARCHER. You can check on your quotas by logging into the ARCHER safe site.
