UM7.1 standard job failing to submit to queue

Reported by: jmarsham Owned by: ros
Component: UM Model Keywords:
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: 7.1

Description (last modified by ros)

I'm at the UM turorial at the Met Office

I have copied the NCAS v7.1 standard global-NAE-4 job and am trying to run the global.

When I hit submit I get:

asked for pwd
CM_MAIN calling extract
pwd again
base extract OK
pwd again
model extract OK
pwd again
FCM_MAIN: Extract OK

FCM_MAIN: submitting
umui_runs/xelya-309163553/umuisubmit_clr

On PUMA I then have:

puma$ps -f

On hector: umui_runs/xelya-309163553 is created but nothing goes to the queue. Any ideas?

Thanks,
John

PS: PUMA is very slow, and repeatedly hangs. Others here don't appear to have this problem

Hi John,

You need to set up ssh-agent so that you won't keep getting asked for you password. The second stage of the submit is hanging. Submission of UM jobs at 7.x will not work without first setting up ssh properly.

Please see instructions available at http://puma.nerc.ac.uk/trac/UM_TUTORIAL/wiki/UmTutorial/SettingUp

I'm not aware of any problems with PUMA. However, I do know from other people that the link from the Met Office to PUMA can often be very slow.

Regards,
Ros.

Thanks. I'm aware of this and thought it was working. This system didn't appear to work, so Willie (he's here) so we thought we'd found a work around it. I'll try it again

Sorry, were errors in my attempt below. I have now worked through all this and it appears successful, except step 6:

puma$ssh-add
Could not open a connection to your authentication agent.

Again, I remember this from attempts on Tuesday

Needed to source my .kshrc even though I had logged off PUMA and back on.

UMUI submission is now not demanding password and there is a job in the Hector queue :)
