    ADE XL doesn't work. ERROR (ADEXL-5025) Reply

    Hello everyone,

    I am using Normal 0 21 false false false FR X-NONE X-NONE Cadence IC6.1.5-64b.500.9  (64-bit addresses) for my design.

    The simulation with ADE L works well. I want to use ADE XL to do monte carlo simulation so, it doens't work. I tried a single run with ADE XL, it doesn't work also and it gives this message's error.

    ERROR (ADEXL-5025): Preparation to run the simulation is failed for the run Interactive.24, point 1, test

     Error while preparing to run the simulation.
     Cannot copy "netlist into run netlist" from "/home/xxx/simulation/TEST/emeteur_commun/adexl/results/data/Interactive.24/1/TEST:emeteur_commun:1/netlist" to "/home/xxx/simulation/TEST/emeteur_commun/adexl/results/data/Interactive.24/psf/TEST:emeteur_commun:1/netlist", cpDataDir call returned 0


     For details open log: /home/xxx/Qubic4X_wrk/logs_xxx/Job8.log for the point: (0 1)

     did someone met this problem ?

    Thank you for your help.

    Abdel

    I also seem to have this problem, and the log file is no help.

     

    ERROR (ADEXL-5025): Preparation to run the simulation is failed for the run Interactive.1, point 1, test RNG:default_ell_filter:1, received error:

    Error:

     ------------------------------

     Error while preparing to run the simulation.

     Cannot copy "netlist into run netlist" from "/root/simulation/RNG/default_ell_filter/default_ell_view/results/data/Interactive.1/1/RNG:default_ell_filter:1/netlist" to "/root/simulation/RNG/default_ell_filter/default_ell_view/results/data/Interactive.1/psf/RNG:default_ell_filter:1/netlist", cpDataDir call returned 0

     For details open log: /home/rguerra/logs_root/Job2.log for the point: (1 1)

     ------------------------------

     

    For more details, consult the job log file:

    /home/rguerra/logs_root/Job2.log 

     

    However, when I go and take a look at the log, there is no helpful information there. Perhaps this error number means something to someone somewhere. I would normally associate a return value of 0 to be a good sign, but it seems that isn't the case here. Virtuoso is run as root with root permissions.

    FWIW, this is on IC6.15.011 with MMSIM11.1

    Following up with my solution to this problem. I had assumed that cpDataDir was a SKILL command and was thus implemented internally. Turn out this is not the case--this is a simple problem of incomplete tool paths. As per Cadence customer service, in a csh environment, the system path should look like the following:

    set path = ( $MMSIMHOME/tools/bin \ $CDSHOME/tools/bin \ $CDSHOME/tools/dfII/bin \ $CDSHOME/tools/plot/bin \ $CDSHOME/tools/etc \ /usr/local/bin $path )

    In my bash environment, my setup is the same but with different syntax:

     

    • export CDSHOME=/root/cadence/installs/IC615
    • export MMSIMHOME=/root/cadence/installs/MMSIM111
    • export PATH=$PATH:$MMSIMHOME/tools/bin
    • export PATH=$PATH:$CDSHOME/bin
    • export PATH=$PATH:$CDSHOME/tools/bin
    • export PATH=$PATH:$CDSHOME/tools/dfII/bin
    • export PATH=$PATH:$CDSHOME/tools/plot/bin
    • export PATH=$PATH:$CDSHOME/tools/etc/bin

     

    The key is that the cpDataDir executable is located in $CDSHOME/tools/dfII/bin.

    Best of luck to any Googlers!
