Dear all,

I fail to understand a problem that occurred two times on different occasions during simulations on a linux cluster

Quote:
[9] --> FOAM FATAL ERROR: (openfoam-2012)
[9] Couldn't create directory "/aName/aName/aName/caseName/processor9/3e-05/uniform/functionObjects"
[9]
[9] From bool Foam::mkDir(const Foam::fileName&, mode_t)
[9] in file POSIX.C at line 664.
[9]
FOAM parallel run exiting
The folder names are changed for privacy.

I tried to create the folder manually using mkdir and it worked as intended.
The folder was created correctly during the two prior timesteps.
There is plenty of free disk space.

Edit: one more thing, functions {} in contolDict looks basically like this:
functions
{
/*
lots of turned of stuff
*/
}

What else can I do to understand this problem?
Kind Regards,
Teresa

Dear all,

some information in case someone encounters something similar:

- solver is icoReactingMultiphaseInterFoam
- simulation redos crashed at different timeSteps with the same error msg
- simulation redo on a different filesystem on the same cluster worked without errors
- simulation redo on same filesystem deleting " functionObjects{}" worked without errors

- our current idea is a problem with the network file system
v1912:Updated file modification skew

Regards,
Teresa
