You get this with srmcp:

$ srmcp -debug=true file://localhost//tmp/hello srm://

Exception in thread "main" rs.state = Failed rs.error = No space left on device
        at gov.fnal.srm.util.SRMPutClient.start(
        at gov.fnal.srm.util.SRMCopy.main(

Tue Oct 18 15:59:17 CEST 2005: setting file request 0 status to Done
SRMClientV1 : getRequestStatus: try #0 failed with error
SRMClientV1 : Invalid state
java.lang.RuntimeException: Invalid state
        at org.dcache.srm.client.SRMClientV1.setFileStatus(

Or a similar error with globus-url-copy, or another utility.


The problem is that some utilities use Permanent as their default and some others Volatile.

For instance :

  • srmcp doesn't work if your pool is of volatile type.
  • globus-url-copy doesn't work if your pool is of permanent type.

You have two possibilities :

  • Modify the type of the pool to "-" (this type allows both Volatile and Permanent files):

dpm-modifypool --poolname <my_pool> --s_type "-"

  • Create two pools, one Volatile and one Permanent

Help !

If it still doesn't help, send the relevant DPM log files to (remove the NONSPAM !).
