Dehalo sbatch error

Reported by: m.couldrey Owned by: um_support
Component: Rose/Cylc Keywords:
Cc: Platform: JASMIN
UM Version:



I'm trying to dehalo a set of model output using suite u-bo201 and I get stuck at the submit-failed stage of the dehalo_and_move task.

In my job-activity.log I have
[STDOUT] 'sbatch: error: Script arguments not permitted with --wrap option

I haven't tried running this suite since the Slurm upgrade, are there compatibility issues? Or perhaps this is something else?

Cheers for any help!

Matt, you have to change over to slurm now.

To get you going:

batch system = slurm

-q = par-single goes to something like --partition = par-single

you can look up others here:

Just change the things in the suite.rc etc to the slurm equivalent. Hope that helps.

Right, thanks for clarifying that. I've updated a few things in the suite.rc and the tasks are submitting ok (but haven't yet started running).

Did you solve your slurm porting problems? If so can we shut the ticket?
If you couldn't find the magic arguments, let me know.

Thanks for following up, Dave.

Yes I did solve the porting issue. I haven't got the suite running yet because I get a "Permission Denied" error during the dehalo & move job
In /home/users/mpc18/cylc-run/u-bo201/log/job/1/dehalo_and_move/NN/job.err
It tells me it's unable to move the files from the data directory into the holding directory.
I've set this suite up a little differently to standard: instead of pointing it at output in my own directory, it looks in Jonathan's space (since that's where the u-bv119 data are stored) and then puts the processed output in my space. In the past I ran the suite successfully on an experiment in Jonathan's directory (his suite u-bq683), but this time it doesn't seem to be working. I do have rwx permissions in his space (i.e. I can create, move and delete files in the data directory) so it's not as simple as granting access.

Any ideas?

Can you run the command on the command line? Or is it just in the python script?

Oh, I can't run it on the command line either. I successfully moved a different file before, but I didn't try the actual one. Looks like I need to get Jonathan to adjust the permissions recursively. Good catch!

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

An update on this: Jonathan (the directory owner) added g+w permissions to the directory and now the suite runs ok. I'll close this ticket. Thanks for the help!
