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', 'mkdir -p "$HOME/cylc-run/nemovar_build" "$HOME/cylc-run/nemovar_build/lo

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.

no gcylc window

When submitting a job, no gcylc window appears.

Sometimes the gui is slow to load. If it does not appear at all however, check that you have X11 forwarding set up from your initial location and the lander.

To do so ssh with the -Y option or alternatively, append the following line to your ~/.ssh/config file:

Host *
ForwardX11 yes
