Error in dump reconfiguration

Reported by: h.luijting@… Owned by: jeff
Component: UM Model Keywords: dump reconfiguration
Cc: Platform:
UM Version:


I'm trying to run a case study using a start dump that Chang gave me - it's a reconfigured ECMWF start dump. I am running a copy of a run I did previously, same domain, same ancillary files etc - just for a different date.

The global run has no problems, but the reconfiguration crashes with this error message:

/hpcx/tmpchkpt/jtmp/l1f402.198027.0/tmp/modscr_xclng/qsexecute: Executing dump reconfiguration program /hpcx/devt/n02/n02-ncas/hanneke/xclng/xclng.reconf

ERROR!!! in reconfiguration in routine Rcf_vertical

Any idea what is going wrong here? The start dump is not in ECMWF grid format, it's an .astart file and it looks fine to me. It does have less variables than the start dump for the other case study but not sure this matters?

I have run your job and it seems to work for me. The only difference was a hand edit in Chang's directory was missing for your run, it is there now. Could you reprocess your job and try running it again. You should delete all the files in the reconfiguration compile directory to get a clean build.
