Failure in reconfiguration

I am trying to set up a limited area model for runs over west Africa. I have got a 12km version to run


which produces a start dump and LBCs (for 6 hours at the moment.

I then tried to use the start dump to create a 4km start dump for a fraction of the original domain (that the LBCs created in xhtzi are compatible with. When I do so I get a fail in the reconfiguration stage. The output is in

and called


I can find a line that says

/work/n02/n02/hum/vn7.3/pathscale_quad/scripts/qsexecute: Error in dump reconfiguration

but not a reason for the failure. I am sure this will be an obvious
problem to those that have used the model more than me but any
pointers would be gratefully received.

The leave file has the line

aprun: -N cannot exceed -n

which is odd. It looks like running the reconfiguration on multiple processors has got switched off - see Reconfiguration→ General Reconfiguration Options, where "Run reconfiguration on multiple processors" is not checked, and should be.

It's also a bit odd that there are references to pathscale in the leave file - please check your .profile has the correct setting for TARGET_MC=cce

Hi Grenville,

Thanks for that, the model now gets further along. I am now in the more more familiar trying to make limited area ancil files.

I guess this can be closed.
