Hi,

I am trying to demultiplex an Illumina run folder using bcl2fastq. I have previously done this on a different system, which has since been changed. I am repeating it on a new CentOS 7 cluster (on which I have sudo rights), but I am getting the following error:

[filges_stefan@centos data]$ /usr/local/bin/configureBclToFastq.pl --use-bases-mask=Y26,I8,Y98   --fastq-cluster-count=20000000 --no-eamss   --ignore-missing-control --ignore-missing-stats --ignore-missing-bcl --mismatches=1   --sample-sheet $SAMPLES   --input-dir=$FLOWCELL_ID/Data/Intensities/BaseCalls  --output-dir=$OUTPUT_DIR

ERROR: /home/filges_stefan/data/190328_NB501037_0388_AH5W7MBGXB/Data/Intensities/BaseCalls/config.xml: file does not exist at /usr/local/lib/bcl2fastq-1.8.4/perl/Casava/Demultiplex.pm line 116.

The file really does not exist. I also checked other run folders that our core facility uploaded for us and that have all been fine to use previously, even though they too don't have a config.xml file in the BaseCalls directory...

A quick google search didn't give any results for this either. Any suggestions on what might be the problem and how to fix it?

edit: I tried setting --flowcell-id=$FLOWCELL_ID as well, but it yields the same error.

Why not use bcl2fastq2? bcl2fastq 1.8.4 has been deprecated for years.

Looks like bcl2fastq-1.8.4 is not compatible with the default Perl version of Centos 7. Use the latest version of Bcl2Fastq, download and install the RPM file.

Thank you! Indeed, that was the problem, bcl2fastq2 works fine!
