#1292 closed error (fixed)

difficulty submitting a job

Reported by: s1251469 Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: ukca
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 7.3



Yesterday evening I started having problem running a job that I had run earlier in the day.

The error I get is:

Calling FCM_MAIN_SCR - local…
(This may take several minutes.)

FCM_MAIN: Calling Extract …
Base extract: OK
Model extract: OK
Reconfiguration extract: OK
FCM_MAIN: Extract OK

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

I made a small change in the code but I don't see why that should mean I can't even submit the job. I think I also increased the resource time.

What can I look at to udnerstand why I have this error?

Many thanks,

Hi Declan,

I have seen the problem on occasions before and either

1) Reprocessing and submitting fixes it


2) It's caused by running out of disk space on /home

In this case neither of the above appear to apply and I've taken a copy of your job and get the same problem. There is no difference between the UMUI files of the working and failed submissions other than the changes you detail above. I am currently at a loss as to what is going on so will continue to investigate. In the meantime you can workaround this by doing Save, Process & Submit in the UMUI as usual. Then on ARCHER go to the newly created umui_runs directory for the job and manually run the SUBMIT script and submit to the queue by running:

archer$ cd ~/umui_runs/xjhxf-<submitid>
archer$ ./SUBMIT
archer$ qsub umuisubmit_clr

I will let you know when I've figured out what's going wrong.

I just had the same thing happen to me this morning, I submitted a UM job to ARCHER yesterday and it was able to run (although it ran out of time).

When I submitted the same job today, (xjgie) I got:

Calling NDS_MAIN_SCR - local…
(This may take several minutes.)
qsub: script file:: No such file or directory
NDS_MAIN: Submit failed

Please note that ARCHER is in an "at risk" maintenance session today, so that may account for the problem.

Thanks Ros,

The workaround did get the job sent for compiling but it crashed in compile with the error:

ftn-2136 crayftn: ERROR in command line

Unable to obtain a Cray Compiling Environment License.

fcm_internal compile failed (256)

I have had this problem before and it was an issue on ARCHER. I suspect that as Grenville says, this is due to the At Risk status.

It's probably worth letting ARCHER know this has happened, just in case its something they can easily fix.

Hi Declan,

I've tried submitting you job again this morning and it has worked each time, so I'm hopeful this was just a problem caused by the ARCHER maintenance. Please can you try submitting again.

Morning Ros,

Yes. I also had a go. It has submitted and compiled with no problems. It is in a queue now but I assume all is fine so you can close this ticket if you like.

Thanks for your help,
