Compiler License FCompL error

Reported by: dstevens Owned by: willie
Component: UM Model Keywords:
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 4.5

Description (last modified by willie)


I'm trying to compile UM (old: vn4.5.1) code (on ARCHER) that compiled OK a couple of weeks ago (late July) but is failing now (9 Aug 2016).

Job output here:


Seems to be failing to find a fortran license:

qsmain(36.128): ***	Running make for compile step

ftn -i8 -r8 -I /work/n02/n02/hum/gcom/intel/gcom3.8/archer_intel_mpp/inc -fp-model source -c ac_ctl1.f

Error: A license for FCompL is not available (-5,414,115).

Make sure that a license file is being used that contains a license
for the requested feature.  If your license requires a license server,
make sure that the server is using the right license file (usually,
this would be the same license file that is being used by this
application), and make sure that you have not changed the license
file since starting the server.

License file(s) used were (in this order):
    1.  Trusted Storage
**  2.  /opt/intel/composer_xe_2015.2.164/licenses
**  3.  /opt/intel/licenses/client.lic
**  4.  /intel/licenses
**  5.  /opt/intel/composer_xe_2015.2.164/bin/intel64/../../Licenses
**  6.  /home/n02/n02/dstevens/Licenses
**  7.  /Users/Shared/Library/Application Support/Intel/Licenses
**  8.  /opt/intel/composer_xe_2015.2.164/bin/intel64/*.lic

ifort: error #10052: could not checkout FLEXlm license

Any help appreciated.

Hi David,

Sorry for the delay in replying. In your leave file you're getting,

ifort: error #10052: could not checkout FLEXlm license

I've just built a later version of the UM with the Intel compiler, so it looks like this may be temporary problem.

I noticed an issue with the STASH > Initialisation table. The option column needs to be completed for those items. If in fact you're not using them at all, then they can be removed by deleting


from the STASH > User STASH table.

So I think if you just try again it will work.
