Today I've experienced problem with running InitRun.sms both in HIRLAM and HARMONIE. It's related to rsync failing. The problem is that it is not trapped by mSMS. Has anyone had similar problems? The problem has been reported to ECMWF.

And this is the explanation:

"if this was just a single failure we assume it was linked to

HPC CHANGE: c1[ab]:/usr/local/bin/rsync updated from 2.5.6 to 3.0.6

which resulted in a short period of protocol mismatch around 9:32. Apologies for
any inconvenience.

If you still have problems, please let us know.

Regards

Carsten"

I tried together with Xiaohua to explicitly launch the rsync command, which is:

==> rsync -vau --exclude=.svn ecgate:/scratch/ms/dk/nhk/hl_home/trunk74/lib/ .

and the system prompts for a password, which, of course is not available.

So something in the network or rsync configuration must have changed, and still is not in place.

The solution is to put the following in your Env_system for HIRLAM or HARMONIE

export RSYNC="/usr/local/bin/rsync -e rsh"

ECMWF reverted their change and we still have problems. Iif you encounter problem try the clean rsync:

export RSYNC="/usr/local/bin/rsync"
