ancil_versions_dm file missing

Reported by: shakka Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: ancils
Cc: Platform: Monsoon2
UM Version: 10.4


I am trying to run a version of the nested suite (id u-ai781) but am receiving the following error during the glm recon step:

/var/spool/PBS/mom_priv/jobs/8707373.xcs00.SC: line 79: /home/d04/elgil/cylc-run/u-ai781/share/data/etc/ancil_versions_dm: No such file or directory

I have been trying to get the model to run with custom orography and land/sea mask ancils (#2201) so have come across the ancil_versions file before. However, I thought they were automatically generated at runtime because before this week I had never encountered it.

This suite is a new working copy that has has very few changes made to it. The only things I have amended are the HPC host (changed from xcm to xcslc0), the cycle start and end points and the location of the startdump files.

What can I do to solve this problem?

Hi Ella,

The file you refer to is a link

/home/d04/elgil/cylc-run/u-ai781/share/data/etc/ancil_versions_dm -> /home/swebst/CAP/ancil_versions/n512e/GA6.0/latest/ancils

However the target no longer exists. Please replace it with

Hi Willie,

Thanks for your response. Just to be clear - where do I change this link? Is there more than one location?

Update: I simply updated the symbolic link and it seems to have worked. Thanks.

Is there a way of changing this permanently? At the moment I am having to re-do this every time I want to re-run the suite (but not when I reload).

Hi Ella,

It's set in your Rose suite:

Thanks Ros! I think this thread can probably be closed now as the problem has been resolved. Ella
