Error when trying to create ancil files with xancil

Reported by: shakka Owned by: um_support
Component: UM Tools Keywords: xancil
Cc: Platform: Monsoon2
UM Version: 10.4


I have previously been able to create ancillary files from netCDF with no problem using xancil. I would like to re-create one of these with a different calendar, and have followed exactly the same method as I previously used. However, I am now getting the following error every time:

Creating namelist file /projects/cascade/elgil/ancils/xancil.namelist
Running mkancil executable /opt/ukmo/utils/bin/mkancil0.50
Output from /opt/ukmo/utils/bin/mkancil0.50 executable:

Writing Orography ancillary file /projects/cascade/elgil/ancils/orog2
ERROR: in procedure get_ncdata_r 1 : NetCDF error number -49 :
NetCDF: Variable not found :

Can you please advise?

I have solved this problem.

I had initially included half of peak-trough height in the ancil file when specifying the variable names, but hadn't included the other orographic roughness components. I switched the option off by toggling the check boxes below and the file was generated with no problems.
