UMUI seems to produce wrong directory structure for vertical levels file out of nowhere.

Reported by: swr06rjk Owned by: lois
Component: UM Mesoscale Keywords: vertical levels, CNTLATM
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: 6.1


When I run job xdrha, I get an error message saying that the vertical levels namelist file does not exist, because the directory path of the file it is trying to read is on HPCx (I have recently switched from HPCx to HECToR). However, I have specified the correct directory structure (on HECToR) in the relevant section of the umui.

When I process the job, it produces the file CNTLATM; this contains (under "&INTFCNSTA") some data that appear to be from a different model, including "INTF_VERTLEVS=" and the file with the incorrect directory structure. Elsewhere, in file INITHIS, it contains "VERT_LEV=" and the file with the correct directory structure.

The output is in xdrha000.xdrha.d08358.t155333.leave.

I suspect this problem Richard is one which we have all got to remember, that the batch processors cannot see the HOME disk space. Make sure your vertical level file is on WORKDIR not HOME and it should be ok.

This is in Atmos > Control > Ouptut data > LBCs out. Select NEXT then VERT. You need to put the full path in i.e. do not use $UMDIR. This should work.

Ah, thank you - I thought I had looked everywhere in the UMUI!

Thank you both for the quick responses.
