Error message: INITTIME: Atmosphere basis time mismatch

Reported by: laurahb Owned by: ros
Component: UM Model Keywords:
Cc: Platform: ARCHER
UM Version: 10.3


I'm running a suite u-ay059. I made some changes to the STASH and stopped the suite, then submitted it again, pointing it to the latest start dump, and setting the basis time to be the same as the date in the start dump. However, I'm getting this error message:
Error message: INITTIME: Atmosphere basis time mismatch
which implies it thinks that the basis time and start-dump date don't match. The Model basis time is set to 19880101T0000Z and the start dump is ay059a.da19880101_00. I've changed the start dump AINITIAL in both the archer.rc and meto_cray.rc files. Also in nci_raijin.rc although I'm not sure if this is necessary.

(I have since discovered that I actually could have just done a —restart and not changed the dump but it's too late now to change it.)

Are there other places I should be changing the date/start dump?

I haven't heard back about this issue - in the end I gave up and just started a new suite, but I've now had the same problem happen, that if I try to restart it by manually specifying a dump and corresponding start date it comes up with the error above, so I'm obviously doing something wrong.

Hi Laura,

Sorry for the delay we're down on numbers due to holidays. Just looked at your original suite u-ay059. Looks like you've changed the value of AINITIAL but you are not running the reconfiguration so it will be picking up the dump indicated by ASTART. Either change the value of astart to point to the dump you want to start from without running reconfiguration or if you need to reconfigure the dump, leave as you have done and switch on "Run the reconfiguration".

Thanks Ros, I didn't realise there was another place I had to change the dump. Seems to be working now.
