Our lab recently installed a local version of Galaxy on a mid-2012 Mac
Pro computer. We can access the Galaxy server and sign in as an
administrator. Today we tried creating a Data Library, adding a
dataset to it, and uploading a directory of files. We followed this
Galaxy documentation (
) to setup this feature:

- Admin > Data Library > Add datasets > Upload directory of files
- file format was set to auto-detect
- and we chose the option to link to files instead of copying them

Galaxy confirmed that the files were successfully uploaded. However,
in the data library, under the Message column, is a message in red
saying "Job error (click name for more info)". Clicking on one of the
uploaded files displays a page with this information:

Date uploaded: 2013-06-28

Miscellaneous information:

1. Should we be concerned about this error?
2. If so, what is the right way to fix it?
3. If not, how do we remove the red error message next to each file:
"Job error (click name for more info)" ?
