Output not archiving to MASS (Moose), project name not specified

Reported by: dilshadshawki Owned by: ros
Component: UMUI Keywords: moose, mass, umui, archiving
Cc: Platform: MONSooN
UM Version: 8.2


Hello Help Desk,

It's me again!

My question this time is related to my output being archived to MASS.

I have set the output to archive to MASS
In the UMUI I have set 'Post Processing → Main Switch + General Questions → Specifict archiving ststem required' to be 'The new system (MOOSE)'.

I have also set the Monson project group name to be 'ukca-imp'

But in the archive.leave file, it says:

mkset command:  ['moo mkset -v moose:crum/xlzch']
Mkset: system error, return code 2
stdout: ; stderr: mkset command-id=211033311 failed: (SSC_TASK_REJECTION) one or more tasks are rejected.
  moose:/crum/xlzch: (TSSC_PROJECT_NAME_REQUIRED) A project name must be specified.
mkset: failed (2)

So it thinks that the project name has not been set, but it has!

What could be going on here?

Job id is xlzch, and .archvie.leave can be found here:

Hi Dill,

Before you archive from a new job id you need to manually run the mkset command. This has been done to try and stop the problem of people archiving to MASS unintentionally.

So on the MONSooN command line you need to run

moo mkset -v moose:crum/xlzch -p=project-ukca-imp

Once you've run this command successfully you will be able to archive from job xlzch.

Hi Ros,

Thanks for letting me know.

I didn't work when I set the project as ukca-imp, but it does when I set it to ukca, is that ok?

The error is:

[dshawk@exppostproc01:~]$ moo mkset -v moose:/crum/xlzch -p=project-ukca-imp
mkset command-id=211241810 failed: (SSC_TASK_REJECTION) one or more tasks are rejected.
  moose:/crum/xlzch: (TSSC_PROJECT_DOES_NOT_EXIST) the requested project does not exist.
mkset: failed (2)

Hi Dill,

Yes I've confirmed with the MONSooN team that for MASS archiving all the ukca sub-projects should use -p=project-ukca.

I will add a comment to this effect on the Collab Twiki Cray UM pages.
