Continuation run with changed ancil

Reported by: ucfaako Owned by: um_support

UM Version: 6.6.3


I've changed two ancillary files in my continuation run, processed and submitted it assuming it would continue with the new forcing files, but it seems something has not updated to the new files. What step am I missing?
My .archive file is attached.

Many thanks,

There's not much to go on here - which files did you change?

Hi Grenville,

Two user ancils, AR5xxxx and airfxxx. These are quite large ancils and come in 20 year chunks.
According to the .archive file the new files seem to be registered after the processing step but once the executable starts it looks for the old files.

So under NLCFILES it shows

USRANCIL= 'USRANCIL : $DATADIR/ancils/HadGEM2_ES/RCP26//AR5srfem_RCP26_2018to2040',
USRMULTI= 'USRMULTI : $DATADIR/ancils/HadGEM2_ES/RCP26//airf_RCP26_2018_2040',

While further down in .archive under UM OUTPUT:

OPEN:  File /work/n02/n02/akncas/ancils/HadGEM2_ES/RCP26//AR5srfem_RCP26_1998to2020 to be Opened on Unit 111 does not Exist
OPEN:  Ignored Request to Open File /work/n02/n02/akncas/ancils/HadGEM2_ES/RCP26//AR5srfem_RCP26_1998to2020 for Reading

It's taking the ancillary file name from the history file. You could edit that file to point to the new ancil or perhaps a safer option would be to start an NRUN.

Thanks Grenville, I'll start an NRUN from the 2018 restart dump.
