MONSooN permission denied error

This is probably related to the recent computer switchover, but when attempting to run a suite using rose suite-run I get the following error:

[INFO] create: log.20170317T115021Z
[INFO] delete: log
[INFO] symlink: log.20170317T115021Z <= log

[FAIL] [Errno 13] Permission denied: '/projects/mo_users'

which I've never seen before, and I'm not even sure the /projects/mo_users directory even exists (either on the old or new hpc).

Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Other information: grep-ing for mo_users in my suites doesn't bring up anything useful, and I couldn't find any mention of it in the rose/cylc config files, so am unsure exactly where it's coming from…
I have copied across the entire contents of my home and projects directories from xcm to xcs, so that *shouldn't* be a problem…

Hi Matt,

What's the suite id please?


comment:3 Changed 4 years ago by mattjbr123

u-ak617, but I seem to get the error with other suites too.

Ok. Looks like there is a problem with the setting of $DATADIR on exvmsrose.

I'll report this to the Met Office, but in the meantime could you try setting $DATADIR in your .profile; something like:

export DATADIR=/projects/solar/mabro

Log out of exvmsrose and back in, then try submitting the suite again.

Yes that does it - thanks!

Hi Matt,

$DATADIR should be set correctly automatically now on exvmsrose so you can remove the setting from your .profile if you want.
