Reported by: aq218 Owned by: um_support
Component: FCM Tutorial Keywords: tutorial extract failed revision keyword not defined
Cc: Platform:
UM Version: 7.1


Hi. Very new user of the UM I have already a problem doing the phase 2 of the tutorial: running jobs. I receive this error message when submitting the job:

Calling FCM_MAIN_SCR - local…
(This may take several minutes.)

FCM_MAIN: Calling Extract …
Base extract: failed
See extract output file /home/aq218/um/um_extracts/xhoja/umbase/ext.out
FCM_MAIN: Extract failed
Tidying up directories …
FCM_MAIN stopped with return code 255

Your job directory on host is:


Your compilation output will be sent to file:


Your model output will be sent to file:


I am pretty sure that I have all the parameters set as in the tutorial pages. I also have my .fcm which includes the revisions.cfg.

Below you will find what there is in the ext.out.

Many thanks in advance for your help!
Best regards,

Hi Aurelien,

It will work now, so please try again.


[Note for self: Added vn7.1_cfg keyword to subversion properties. With the upgrade of FCM keywords are no longer read in from the .cfg files.]
