[Errno 36] File name too long

Hello everyone,

And error came cross when I ran
qiime rescript get-ncbi-data
--p-query 'txid6656[ORGN] AND (cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1[Title] OR cytochrome c oxidase subunit I[Title] OR cytochrome oxidase subunit 1[Title] OR cytochrome oxidase subunit I[Title] OR COX1[Title] OR CO1[Title] OR COI[Title])'
--output-dir NCBIdata_ArthOnly

the code was running under qiime2-2023.5 environment.
the error was:
[Errno 36] File name too long: '/tmp/qiime2/xosnshane/LOCK|897b1fccdd27|96373|727839341269402725'

Is there anyone encounter the same issue and how did you solve this?

Hello @Charmainehan, what kind of environment are you running QIIME 2 in? A laptop? An HPC cluster? Mac, Linux, WSL? If it is an HPC cluster, do you happen to know what type of filesystem the cluster uses? If not, you should be able to ask an admin.

Hello @Oddant1 , I am using Linux system on the remote sever.

Thanks for taking caring of my issue.

Do you know what Linux distro and file system the server is using? If not, can you ask an admin?

Hello @Oddant1 , here is info about distro and filesystem

@Charmainehan, that doesn't look like it should be causing this issue to me. Can you rerun the command with the --verbose flag and post the output here if you still get an error?
