Running UM 6.1 on Hector - standard mesoscale runs

UM Version: 6.1


Regarding email message from Bethan White (below), we have now solved this my using Steven Pickerings .profile. It still doesn't run though - but this may be to do with todays problems with Hector?


Bethan Whites (eebaw) email 20 Oct 15:15:43
I am trying to run the standard UM 6.1 experiments (from on Hector. I have copied these experiments and
changed the target machine user ID and Mail ID to my Hector user ID.

When I 'Check Setup' I get the following message:
List Check Error in window subindep_UMCET
Variable: ENSEMBLE

→ Model Selection

→ Sub-Model Independent

→ Ensemble set-up

When I go to the window subindep_UMCET, all fields are empty. However, on closing this window and
re-checking, this error no longer appears.

I have then saved and processed the job. However, when I submit it I get the following error
umui_runs/xdlua-294151545/SUBMIT:/etc/profile.d/[21]: whence: -t: unknown option

umui_runs/xdlua-294151545/SUBMIT[10]:.:/vn6.1/normal/scripts/.umsetvars_6.1: not found

Could you tell me what these error messages mean and how I can address them?

Also, the Tic Code for the job is n02. Gerry Devine suggested that this may no longer be a valid
code. If this is the case, do you know what I should do?

  • Owner changed from um_support to lois
  • Status changed from new to assigned

Your job, or rather Bethan's job, xdlua may still not work because she has speficied the wrong TIC code.

On HECToR each user is assigned a subgroup. These are the current subgroups
n02-clim (For NCAS core climate work)
n02-weat (for all the NCAS weather modelling)
n02-chem (for NCAS chemistry research together with UKCA)
n02-cms (For NCAS modelling support)
n02-ncas (for researchers enable by NCAS but not directly funded by NERC: PhD students, EU funded…)
n02-bas (for British Antarctic Survey)
n02-nceo (for NCEO users only)
n02-qesm (for NERC funded QUEST/QESM)
n02-sol (for the SOLCLI project)
n02-hgem (for UJCC/Higem)
n02-casc (for the CASCADE project)

Currently Bethan is in the n02-ncas subgroup so this is what she should be using for her UM TIC code. To check which groups users are in, use the command groups on HECToR.
