I am using
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.

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

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.

In reply to Matrixesque:
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 \
/usr/local/bin $path )
In my bash environment, my setup is the same but with different syntax:
export CDSHOME=/root/cadence/installs/IC615export MMSIMHOME=/root/cadence/installs/MMSIM111export PATH=$PATH:$MMSIMHOME/tools/binexport PATH=$PATH:$CDSHOME/binexport PATH=$PATH:$CDSHOME/tools/binexport PATH=$PATH:$CDSHOME/tools/dfII/binexport PATH=$PATH:$CDSHOME/tools/plot/binexport PATH=$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!
