Error message upon logging in.

Reported by: rb16096 Owned by: ros
Component: MOSRS Keywords: password caching
Cc: edward.armstrong@… Platform: PUMA
UM Version:



I'm getting the following error message below upon logging into PUMA. Would i be correct in thinking that following the instructions on the wiki page for "Setting up authentication to the MOSRS on PUMA" would be the correct course of action?

Many thanks,


[FAIL] [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/rb16096/.subversion/servers'
Error: Please configure your username in ~/.subversion/servers
Run "mosrs-cache-password" to try caching your password again

Hi Ryan,

Is this still a problem?

Yes you can follow those instructions or alternatively, and usually easier, we have a script on PUMA that can be run to do the MOSRS setup for you. See Section 1.3.ii Configuring access to MOSRS

Hi Ros,

Yes this is still a problem. Would i still be able to solve this error without having an account on the met office science repository service?

Thanks for any help you're able to provide.

Hi Ryan,

If you don't need access to MOSRS for anything then simply comment out or remove the following 2 lines in your ~/.profile:

[[ $- != *i* ]] && return # Stop here if not running interactively
. mosrs-setup-gpg-agent


P.S Can you please respond to tickets via the helpdesk system (web) rather than direct emails. This way other members of the team will be able to pick up the query if the original responder is away. Thanks.
