Unable to submit job from UMUI to ARCHER

Reported by: mbareford Owned by: ros
Component: UMUI Keywords:
Cc: Platform: PUMA
UM Version: 8.6


I am a new PUMA user and I've been trying to submit a UM job (xklpa) from UMUI (mbareford@puma) to my account under the n02 project on ARCHER.

In addition, I've gone through the process off setting up a ssh-agent, such that I can ssh to archer from my puma login. Also, before starting the UMUI, I successfully ran the ssh-add command.

When submitting the job, there is partial success, in that a umui_jobs folder is created in my home area on ARCHER, but the UMUI also reports an access error when attempting to create a folder for the source code in my home area on ARCHER. Attached is a file that contains a copy of the error text.

Hi Michael,

I have suspicions that your ssh is not setup correct as the output indicates an ssh authentication failure. You say you have set up ssh-agent, can you please confirm that you can login from PUMA to ARCHER without a prompt for password or passphrase?

Hi Ros,

Yes, I can login from PUMA to ARCHER without having to enter a password or passphrase.
The command I use is "ssh bareford@…”.

Hi Michael,

I've also just noticed that you are logging into ARCHER as bareford but trying to write to disk space under /home/z01/z01/mrb which will not work. Can you use /home/n02/n02/bareford?

Thanks for the spotting that Ros: I hadn't updated UM_ROUTDIR within the FCM Configuration area of UMUI.
