#968 closed error (fixed)

Ancillary file error

Reported by: avoulg Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Model Keywords: error, rivers, monsoon, ancillary
Cc: m.kasoar12@… Platform: MONSooN
UM Version: 8.2


Dear Sir/Madam?,

I am a new user of the UM on MONSooN. I recently managed to run a test simulation (identical to a template that a colleague gave me) and it ran fine. Now, I went back to it and tried to re-run it, but got a problem: in the .rcf.leave file, there is the following error message:

ERROR: the Ancil filenames version ~odarby/ancil_versions/filenames_UM8.2_invert_rivers not found

Could you please advise what may have gone wrong and how it could be fixed?

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi Apostolos,

Oliver who's file is referenced recently left the Met Office and his directory has been earmarked for deletion. I have now copied these files to $UMDIR/ancil_versions.

You will need to go to the UMUI window Atmosphere → Ancil and input data files → In file related options → Ancillary version files and change the pathnames accordingly.

Hi Ros,

OK, thank you. I changed both boxes from ~odarby to $UMDIR. However, I now get this error:

MAIN_SCR: Calling Extract …
Extracting UMATMOS base repository…
UMATMOS base repository extract failed
See extract output file /home/avoulg/um/um_extracts/xhuhi/baserepos/UMATMOS/ext.out
MAIN_SCR: Extract failed
MAIN_SCR stopped with return code 1
Job submission failed

It does not seem to be related to the change, as if I go back to how it was before (~odarby) it still fails with the error that you see above.

Any ideas?

Hi Apostolos,

This error will be because we are currently in the middle of upgrading subversion.
You should have received an email about this work yesterday. If not let me know and I'll make sure you are on the PUMA users email list. An email will be sent out once the work is finished and everything is working again.

Hi Ros,

OK, you are right: I have got the e-mails. Things are going smoothly now and I have submitted my run.

Thanks for your help.
