DPP and FunctionEdge

ecuencaecuenca Posts: 24Member


when I'm running the DPP I get an error. I think it is because the command '.exec5886755893230759761' is removed from the temp folder while it is being used. I have tried with the '-keepIntermediates' option but the command is still being deleted.

Any suggestions to avoid it?

Thank you in advance,


The error (I have the complete output if needed):

    Yes, I think so, I have shortened the locations of directories but everything is at lustre, visible by all farm nodes.

    I think it wasn't the problem. There is a command I can use to not delete the files in temp folder?

  • ecuencaecuenca Posts: 24Member

    YES, you were right!
    At farm FAQ: "each blade has a local /tmp directory. This filesystem is not visible from any other machine"
    Thank you very much,
    now it's running!!
