Difficulty submitting jobs to MONSooN from PUMA

Reported by: axy Owned by: ros
Component: PUMA Keywords: PUMA MONSooN rsa ssh
Cc: axy@… Platform:
UM Version: 7.7


Hi Help,

I'm afraid that I'm stuck at a fairly basic stage of the UMUI job submission process. I think that I've set up a job correctly (it's xhpya if that information is needed), but submission fails because I haven't set up my rsa keys correctly.

The original information I received from MONSooN does't contain any direct information about this, but in poking around the NCAS website, I found this page …

… which seems to address it. However, in trying to follow the instructions I've hit up against a problem in that I don't have a .kshrc (or equivalent for other shells) in my directory.

Most likely I've simply failed to set something else up, but the limit of my (extremely limited) Unix knowledge has been exhausted. Hence this message. Apologies if I'm just being supremely stupid.

With best regards,

Hi Andrew,

Yes, the instructions assume you have either a .kshrc file or a .profile.

If you don't have a .kshrc file then put the ". $HOME/.ssh/setup" line in your $HOME/.profile on PUMA. If you don't have one of them either just create a new file $HOME/.profile and place the above line in it.

Hi Ros,

Thanks very much for getting back to me so quickly.

I haven't quite followed your suggestions, but with the help of some local colleagues I think I've patched together something workable at my end for now. So far anyway, I've been able to get the UMUI to successfully submit from PUMA to MONSooN.

Best regards,
