SSH -Y Monsoon: timeout in locking authority file

Reported by: Jez.Carter Owned by: ros
Component: UM Model Keywords: xauthority
Cc: Platform: Monsoon2
UM Version:


When using SSH -Y to connect to the Monsoon server from my Linux machine I get the following error:

/usr/bin/xauth: timeout in locking authority file /home/d02/jcarter/.Xauthority

Then when connecting to xcslc0 I get this error:

Warning: No xauth data; using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding.

I have then not been able to run rose from xcslc0. What is causing the initial error and is this what is preventing me accessing rose?

Best wishes,

Hi Jez,

Often problems with .Xauthority result from lack of disk space but it doesn't look like you've copied any files to lander (which you shouldn't).

I will pass this to the Monsoon team.

Problem was due to $HOME directory on lander having incorrect permissions.
