Running nesting suite from ECMWF driving data on ARCHER

UM Version: 11.1



I've set up suite u-bh889 on PUMA in order to run the nesting suite on ARCHER at vn11.1, using ECMWF analyses and forecast files as the driving model. However, upon submission of the job I'm noticing that a couple of dependencies seem to be missing on ARCHER, specifically:

1) It seems that the 'ec_um_recon' jobs fail due to a missing grib_api library:

? Error message: Attempting to read GRIB data, but GRIB_API ifdef not present
? in build. Please note the GRIB API is currently the only method
? for decoding GRIB

I've tried adding 'module load grib_api' at various points in the ARCHER suite-adds.rc file, but it doesn't seem to make a difference - you can see my changes at

2) Also the 'surf_smc' task fails with the following:

PrgEnv?-intel(3):ERROR:105: Unable to locate a modulefile for 'PrgEnv?-intel/5.2.40'
ModuleCmd_Load.c(244):ERROR:105: Unable to locate a modulefile for 'cray-snplauncher'

I wonder if you can advise on a solution to these issues?

Many thanks,
