Machine entry in defs.local.ini but not in mdb leads to bad error message

Reported by: Ian Hinder Owned by: mthomas
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: SimFactory Version:
Keywords: Cc:


If I have an entry for my local machine in defs.local.ini but I do not have an mdb file for it, I get the following error:

MacBook:llama ian$ sim2 sync datura
Error: required key basedir in section macbook is missing

This does not tell me what the problem is. I would expect to get the same error as when the section is not present:

MacBook:llama ian$ sim2 sync damiana
Unknown machine name macbook
Info: Simfactory command: simfactory2/bin/../lib/ "sync" "damiana"
Info: Version 1230
The Simulation Factory: Manage Cactus simulations

Info: defs: /Users/ian/Cactus/llama/simfactory2/etc/defs.ini
Info: defs.local: /Users/ian/Cactus/llama/simfactory2/etc/defs.local.ini
Error: Unknown local machine macbook. Please use 'sim setup' to create a local machine entry from the generic template.
