At the met office the code reviewer updates KGOs, but this doesn't work for us

The weekly test suite is currently requiring a number of KGO updates, probably a good point to look at this.

Created nci_n48_eg/vn10.3 by hand so that the developer group runs.

comment:6 Changed 4 years ago by Martin Dix seems to work properly on raijin if I setup ssh-agent so it can get to accessdev and I add


to $HOME/.metomi/rose.conf.


raijin% rose config rose-suite-run hosts


raijin% cylc suite-state --host=accessdev um_vn10.3

both work.

raijin% cylc suite-state --host=accessdev -d /home/548/accesstester/cylc-run trunk-nightly

works when run as me so we should be able to update KGOs flagged in the regular testing.

Note that the generous default number of retries means that cylc suite-state takes a long time to fail if given a non-existent suite name.

Use --new-version to install the files for a new UM version.

trunk-weekly failed on


due to a real change, 1162 at

Our rose-stem/site/nci/variables.rc is set to track the Met Office one

{%- set NCI_N48_ND_KGO          = meto.XC40_N48_ND_KGO                      %}

which now has

{%- set XC40_N48_ND_KGO='001-tkt1162' %}

so the rose-ana task is failing because it's looking for the new directory /g/data/access/KGO/standard_jobs/rose/nci_n48/001-tkt1162, not because the comparison has actually failed.

This means that the script doesn't work.

An ugly workaround is to reset site/meto/variables.rc to the previous version and rerun the rose-ana tasks so they fail properly. then works.

Not tracking the Met Office variables is even worse because then we'd have to get a change into the trunk to update our own version variables.
