GC3 model (copy of u-ac825) does not run

Reported by: peterh Owned by: annette
Component: UM Model Keywords: GC3 modules
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 10.3


My suite is u-ai218, a copy of u-ac825 listed on the NCAS page here:

I copied u-ac825 and changed the n02 expense code and my username. It compiles and reconfigures alright, but does not run the model. The error is:

Could not find NEMO output file: ocean.output
Could not find NEMO solver file: solver.stat

Please could you advise?

Hi Peter,

The error message is a red-herring; those missing files are NEMO log files, which weren't created as the run didn't get that far.

The actual problem is a module mismatch on ARCHER, causing the suite to hang.

To fix, edit your suite.rc file and change the pre-script line under [[XC40]] from:

        pre-script = "{{MODULE_CMD}} module list"


        pre-script = "{{MODULE_CMD}} module switch cray-mpich cray-mpich/7.1.1; module list"

You will then need to do a full rebuild. The easiest thing to do is redo the whole run as follows:

rose suite-run --new

We will update this in the reference suite.

Note there have been problems with the ARCHER serial nodes today, and I'm not sure they are resolved yet, so it is probably best to wait for the all clear from ARCHER before resubmitting. (You should have received an email earlier today about this - if not check your email notification settings in SAFE).
