Description

Dear helpdesk

This is the first time I've tried to run a UM job on HECToR. I've got one by adapting one from Annette. I have probably missed out something simple, though. Can you suggest what might be causing the problem below?

Thanks

Jonathan

This job is running on machine nid00012,
using UM directory /work/n02/n02/hum,
and test directory /work/n02/n02/hum/umtest.

Test versions of UM scripts used

PATH USED = /work/n02/n02/gregoryj/tmp/tmp.nid00012.2124/modscr_xcwxd:/work/n02/n02/hum/bin:/work/n02/n02/hum/bin:/opt/pbs/8.1.4/bin:/opt/modules/3.1.6/bin:/home/n02/n02/gregoryj/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/opt/pathscale/bin:.:/work/n02/n02/hum/vn4.5/utils:.:/work/n02/n02/hum/vn4.5/utils:/work/n02/n02/hum/vn4.5/scripts:/work/n02/n02/hum/vn4.5/exec

Hi Jonathan

Can you run this job again but this time edit your SUBMIT file to change

set -a            # Set jobscript UNICOS options
SETOPT=a          # Choose shell "set" options for  lower level scripts

to

set -ax            # Set jobscript UNICOS options
SETOPT=ax          # Choose shell "set" options for  lower level scripts

Jeff.

Done. Output is /home/n02/n02/gregoryj/um/umui_out/xcwxd000.xcwxd.d08217.t121728.comp.leave

Thanks. Jonathan

Still not sure why it doesn't work, In your SCRIPT file can you this time add these lines

trap EXIT HUP TERM
ls -l $TEMP

before this line

if test ! -d $TEMP

Done. See /home/n02/n02/gregoryj/um/umui_out/xcwxd000.xcwxd.d08217.t125203.comp.leave

Thanks. Jonathan

This time the job got further than before (I've no idea why), and it failed because none of the archiving scripts are available. I've now added these scripts so you should try again. You should remove the x option in set/SETOPT now.

Dear Jeff

Thanks - that seems to have fixed it. I have got a compilation problem now, which is more routine! What will it do when it "archives", since there is no archiving system? I was hoping it would neatly copy the files destined for archive from DATAW to some other directory (as on HPCx), and delete them in DATAW.

Cheers

Jonathan

Good, I'm not sure what was the original problem was, something to do with TMPDIR.

What will it do when it "archives", since there is no archiving system? I was hoping it would neatly copy the files destined for archive from DATAW to some other directory (as on HPCx), and delete them in DATAW.

I've done this for vn6.1, but not for vn4.5 at the moment.

Dear Jeff

The job apparently needs trap EXIT HUP TERM before if test ! -d $TEMP to make it work - if I reprocess it, it fails just as it did in the first place. Is this always needed at 4.5? Annette apparently didn't need it though. If I always need it, I can construct a hand-edit for it, but I am puzzled. Is it because I have switched on the archive system?

Thanks

Jonathan

Hand edit available to fix this problem

Problem only occurs for certain people, needs further investigation.
