Description (last modified by ros)


I have a job which I have been running all morning, xfggb. Now when I submit it I get the error

Base extract: failed
See extract output file
FCM_MAIN stopped with return code 2 

I've tried deleting the job in 'umui_jobs' and 'um_extracts' and then resubmitting. I've also tried deleting the corresponding directory on Hector and trying again. None of which worked. I looked at the ext.out file but the message didn't mean anything to me.

Thanks for any help,

Hi Andrew,

I think it is because you have the job set to use an existing model executable (i.e. not compile) and you are requesting recompilation of the reconfiguration executable but have run the reconfiguration switched off. It doesn't like this combination of switches. Since you are not running the reconfiguration there is no needt to compile it. I'd suggest going to panel compilations and modifications —> Compile options for the reconfiguration and select Run from existing executable as named below
