This error means that you are logged in to a computer that calls
itself "krakenpf4", but simfactory doesn't know to which HPC system it
belongs. Simfactory assumes that Kraken's head nodes are called
"krakenN" or "kraken-pwdN".

You can update Kraken's pattern that recognises HPC systems from

aliaspattern    = ^kraken(-pwd)?[1234](\.nics\.utk\.edu)?$


aliaspattern    = ^kraken(-pf|-pwd)?[1234](\.nics\.utk\.edu)?$

in Kraken's entry in the file mdb.pm. If this helps, please tell us,
so that we can correct this entry officially.
