Troubleshooting

Unable to submit jobs

The suite will fail straight away and the following error appears in the log/suite/err file:

Host key verification failed.
2015-01-21T14:56:23Z ERROR - [fcm_make.1] -Failed to construct job submission command
2015-01-21T14:56:23Z WARNING - Command '['ssh', '-oBatchMode=yes', '-oConnectTimeout=10', 'exvmsrose

g/job"']' returned non-zero exit status 255
2015-01-21T14:56:23Z ERROR - [fcm_make.1] -submission failed 

This is because of an inability to ssh into the Rose VM from the Cylc VM interactively.

To solve log in to the Cylc VM and then back to the Rose VM specifying the full paths, to add these to the known_hosts file.
