I am not able to make an exact copy of a suite

Description

Hi, I received and made a copy of a suite from the Met Office which I successfully ran today. Their suite is u-aq301 and my copy is u-ar502.

Now I would like to use u-ar502 to build on but after typing rosie copy u-ar502 the new suite u-ar742 is not a copy of u-ar502 but an exact copy of u-aq301 and contains no changes I made to u-ar502.

Could you please let me know how to make an exact copy of the most recently saved suite incuding any changes made in the GUI and on the command line. For example, there is a new file MONSooN.rc in /home/d04/suvar/roses/u-ar502/site.

Many thanks for your help.

I just realised that I did not use fcm commit!!

It asked me to add something above the line but I was not sure what to add so left it blank.

I will make another copy.

I just copied 502 again but the same problem is happening. It is making a copy of 301. I must be doing fcm commit wrong. Could you please let me know what I should be doing?

Many thanks

Hi Sunil,

I understand you have modified u-ar502, so with ~/roses/u-ar502 you should be able to type

fcm status

and see a list of the changes you have made. To put these in the repository, you need to type

fcm commit

An editor window will appear. You should then type a sentence or two describing why you made the changes - don't leave it blank. Save the file and exit. You will then see a "really commit y/n?" question to which you should answer y.

Regards
Willie

Hi Sunil,

I forgot to say, if you have added a file then you need

fcm add MONSooN.rc

for each file you added. Do this before committing.

Hi Willie,

I just did a fcm status and there are the following changes:-

[suvar@exvmsrose:~/roses/u-ar502]$ fcm status
M app/postproc/rose-app.conf
M app/um/rose-app.conf
M rose-suite.conf
M rose-suite.info
M site/MONSooN.rc

The only file is MONSooN.rc so I will type fcm add site/MONSooN.rc.

The others are amendments to the files themselves. Will these changes be ported to the new copy automatically when I fcm commit?

Thank you.

Sunil

Hi Sunil,

The purpose of fcm commit is to add your local changes to the repository, so that they are available to everyone. When you run your suite you run the local copy. Also, when you commit you also update the history of the suite. You can see this by typing

fcm log

in your suite directory.

Regards
Willie
