problems with setting STASHmaster location to repository in rose-app.conf at vn10.6.1

Reported by: luke Owned by: ros
Component: Rose Keywords: STASHmaster
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 10.6



I am attempting to port a vn10.6.1 GA7.1+StratTrop suite from the MONSooN xcm (u-ak352) to ARCHER (u-ak468). To specify the STASHmaster_A file the following line is inserted into the app/um/rose-app.conf file:


which is then later in the file followed by


this works fine on the xcm, but on ARCHER the recon job.err file gives the following:

[FAIL] file:STASHmaster=source=fcm:um.xm_tr/rose-meta/um-atmos/HEAD/etc/stash/STASHmaster@31236: bad or missing value
Received signal ERR

I know that this technique worked at vn10.4 for the UKCA practicals:

so I'm confused as to what is going wrong here.

Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Hi Luke,


Needs to be in the rose-suite.conf file….

Hi Ros,


That's got it. The recon step has passed. It's annoying that it works one way with Monsoon, but then not with ARCHER…

Many thanks, I'll close this ticket now.

Best wishes,

Hi Luke,

Yes it is annoying; differences in HPC setup - Monsoon can see the mirror repositories but ARCHER can't.
