ACCESS home (~access) migration

The ACCESS home directory ~access was migrated from Gadi's non-persistent /scratch filesystem to the persistent /g/data filesystem on 2020-12-14.

The new location of ~access is /g/data/access/projects/access. Any references to ~access will work normally, references to the old location /projects/access will need to be updated.

Generic fixes

You can check what needs to be changed in a configuration directory with the command

grep 'projects/access' . -r --exclude-dir .svn

Error reading STASETS_DIR

Error Message

FORT_GET_ENV: Environment Variable STASETS_DIR
FORT_GET_ENV: Value /g/data/access/projects/access/umdir/vn7.3/ctldata/stasets
FORT_GET_ENV: Value too long for Allocated Storage

In some versions the length of variables within the model are too small for the full path. A workaround is to use a symbolic link to the working directory

ln -s ~access/umdir umdir
export UMDIR=umdir

Missing libgrib_api

Error message

error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Make sure your model run loads the module 'grib-api'
