Permission denied error when I run 'rose suite-run'

Reported by: anmcr Owned by: willie
Component: Rose/Cylc Keywords: Nesting Suite
Cc: Platform: Monsoon2
UM Version: 10.9

Description (last modified by willie)

Dear Helpdesk,

I took a copy of Stu Webster's vn10.9 nested suite (u-av356) and tried to run it on /projects/polar/amworr on monsoon2, but the run wasn’t submitted as it mistakenly thinks that I am still wanting to output data to cascade. See below. The name of my run is u-aw915.

I have added the line 'export DATADIR=/projects/polar/amworr' to my .profile file. I have also modified the file /home/d01/amworr/roses/u-aw915/opt/rose-suite-monsoon.conf, and replaced 'cascade' with 'polar'. However, neither of these changes have resulted in success.

I would be grateful for some advice.

Many thanks,

Hi Andrew,

Could you try a fresh start and see what happens,

rose suite-run --new

Hi Andrew,

Is this still a problem?

Hi Willie,

I've been on annual leave and then at a workshop. I will try your suggestion tomorrow.

Many thanks,

Dear Willie,

I tried your suggestion, but it gives the exact same error.

Best wishes,

Hi Willie,

There was a line in my bash script that pointed to cascade. When I removed the line the problem was fixed.

Many thanks,

Hi Andrew

Pl do this;

add the following at the top of the rose-suite.conf file

root-dir{share}=*=/projects/<your desired xcs group>/$USER
root-dir{work}=*=/projects/<your desired xcs group>/$USER

This will tell the suite to direct all output to /projects/<your desired xcs group>/$USER.
