Thanks for your reply Peter

The other tools work fine. I noticed that the makeblastdb process was still running on the server even after Galaxy said the job was complete, but still no files appeared in this directory. I have killed that process for now and will play around with it and see if I can figure it out. I'll let you kno if I find something.

There should be a collection of files named blastdb.* in the folder

However there is no directory dataset_85192_files. I have blast installed
and I'm able to run makeblastdb on the command line.

Do I have to make any other modifications before I can use Blast tools?

I'm unsure what could be wrong. Do the other BLAST+ tools seem to
work (e.g. blastp)? Are all the BLAST tools configured the same way
in terms of universe_wsgi.ini and their job runners - or do you have
some running on the cluster and some on the head node?

My guess is something about the mounted storage, but then I
would have expected problems with other tools as well.
