Dear all,

We are having problems executing our job. As the log below shows we hit a problem with SVN. SVN cannot find the archer machine.cfg. We have set our job up as a qsub job.

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

MAIN_SCR: Calling Extract …

I can't find /home/tt282xlkya/baserepos/UMATMOS/ext.out

I can't find the umui experiment xlky (I do see your extract directory 'though), so I am struggling to know how to help. Have you deleted the umui job or have you hidden it?

xlkl deleted
Job xlldb exhibits the same problem

Looking in your PUMA /home/tt282/um/um_extracts/xlldb/baserepos/UMATMOS/ext.out
I can see the problem is because you haven’t specified the ncas branches and configurations that are needed
to run on ARCHER. Full details on what changes are needed to convert Met Office/MONSooN job to run on
ARCHER are available here:

The bit I can immediately see you are missing is this:

FCM Configuration → FCM Options for UM Atmos and Recon:
Bindings Location: Set to fcm:um_br/dev/um/vn8.6_machine_cfg/src/configs/bindings

Container File name and Location: $UM_SVN_BIND/container.cfg@vn8.6_cfg
Use different version of UM code base: set to vn8.6

Add the following branch to the "User Modifications" Table:
Add fcm:um_br/pkg/Config/vn8.6_ncas/src and place a Y in the last column.
