Hello, I'm just reporting I'm getting "An error occurred setting the metadata for this dataset" for almost all jobs, including simple jobs that previously worked with the data in my workflow, like FastQ groomer jobs. Because of this many jobs are getting stalled or having errors.
If you have had job execution problems at Galaxy Main (http:/usegalaxy.org) over the last few days, please do the following:
For successful jobs with metadata problems: Click on the "autodetect metadata" link within the expanded dataset box to reset. These datasets should be fully intact. However, rerunning is also an option.
For jobs that failed, these will have an error similar to:
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/galaxy-repl/main/scratch2/XXXX'
Remote job server indicated a problem running or monitoring this job.
Rerun the just jobs that failed or the complete workflow, your choice.
Note: If the job errors again with the
Remote job server error, the problem could be with your inputs or tool form usage. Troubleshooting help is here. If you cannot determine the problem after reviewing, a bug report can be sent in.
For either: If a workflow was used and the history is complicated with success, failed, and metadata-problem jobs, permanently deleting the prior run and rerunning from the start may be the simplest solution.
Many will be rerunning jobs, so the queues may be longer than normal for certain job types. Please be patient and allow queued jobs to stay queued until executed.
Thanks for reporting the issues and please let us know if the reruns are problematic in this same post as a comment to this reply.
Jen, Galaxy team
