I have never been able to get the new cylc1.jasmin to prompt me for my MOSRS password. This wasn’t a problem until this moment when I now need to create a new JULES branch…
I have exactly followed the instructions on here, up to the point where it says “it should now prompt you for a password” https://code.metoffice.gov.uk/trac/jules/wiki/RoseJULESonJASMIN
Instead of a password prompt I get the following message
Warning: the ECDSA host key for ‘cylc1.jasmin.ac.uk’ differs from the key for the IP address ‘18.104.22.168’
Offending key for IP in /home/users/schadburn/.ssh/known_hosts:6
Matching host key in /home/users/schadburn/.ssh/known_hosts:7
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Any idea what this means?
Thanks a lot,
Have you tried deleting that line in the knownhosts file?
Thanks - that has removed the error message but still no password prompt. I’m 99% sure everything in my .bashrc and .bash_profile files are identical to the wiki page!
All the best,
What happens when you type
on the cylc1 command prompt?
It asked for my password twice and cached it! And then I could create a branch. hooray.
It still doesn’t prompt for my password when I log in, but at least I can use this command and still do what I need to.
Thanks a lot,
Fatima from the JASMIN helpdesk looked at your .bashrc file (since JASMIN crashed at the same time as I copied your .bashrc file to my account and was modifying it).
She noted that you should be using /apps/jasmin instead of /apps/contrib in various places in your .bashrc and .bash_profile files.
I also noticed that your cylc1 is cylc1.ceda instead of cylc1.jasmin, so that’s why it wasn’t trying to check your password.
This is great, it’s working now. Thanks a lot. I was just not spotting the differences between the text in my files and the text in the tutorial!
