Invalid --het-group value: 128


I was running something quite big in terms of the number of ensembles and then I bumped into this error message. Is this something easy to fix?

srun: error: Invalid --het-group value: 128

The suites are u-ch427-0n96-ens256 and u-ch427-0n96-ens257. The number of ensembles, 256 and 257, is the minimal to be run the largescale queue in the full Archer2 system.

Kind regards, Luciana.

Hi Luciana,

Talking to Archer2 this looks to be a system imposed limit.

Slurm het job functionality was not designed for running such large ensembles as far as I understand.
