Error moving data to the RDF

Reported by: bharvey Owned by: um_support
Component: HECToR Keywords:
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: <select version>



I've just started trying to move some data to the RDF on HECToR. The files seem to be moving ok (I can view them in xconv etc.), but I get a message like the following for each file:

mv: setting attributes for `./xgxum/xgxuma.pbt8oct': Operation not supported

I'm not sure what this means. Do you know if it is something I need to worry about?

I'm moving the files from my work directory to /nerc/n02/n02/bharvey

Many thanks,

This is the UM helpdesk, I was suggesting that you try the HECToR helpdesk at support@….

Here's HECToR's response to Ben's query:

Dear Ben -

This is a Lustre error, and results from using the mv command to move
files between a lustre(work) and non-lustre(rdf) filesystem. You should
use cp instead and then delete the originals from work once they have
been copied to the rdf.

Please let us know if you experience any further problems.
