No hosts selected on archer

Reported by: luciad Owned by: um_support
Component: PUMA Keywords: login fail
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 11.1



I am trying to run a suit from pumatest on archer, but I get the 'No hosts selected' error. I have tried all the possible ways to fix it following different ticket suggestions (#3162, #3090) and the CMS configuration steps (, without success. When I type 'rose host-select' I get [FAIL] No (default) host specified.

Could you help me solve this issue?

Thank you,

Hi Lucia,

Can you check that your ssh-agent is still up and running? I.e can you run ssh and not be prompted for password or passphrase.

Hi Ros,

I've tested that but it asks for a password. So after I've done 'rose host-select' and added all the ARCHER hosts. This still failed.

I also did ssh-agent:

SSH_AUTH_SOCK=/tmp/ssh-GWwcIX8r5XsI/agent.16537; export SSH_AUTH_SOCK;
echo Agent pid 16538;

and ssh-add:
Error connecting to agent: No such file or directory

rose host-select
[FAIL] No (default) hosts specified.

I checked my config file and the .profile file and they look fine.

Hi Lucia,

Please remove the SSH environment file:

rm ~/.ssh/

Then log out of PUMATest and back in again. You should then see a message similar to:

Initialising new SSH agent…

Then run ssh-add, type in your passphrase and then ssh
You should be logged onto ARCHER without prompt for password or passphrase.

Once you can log onto archer, try running rose host-select archer and hopefully it should connect to an ARCHER login node.
