WPS run Successfully.
The real.exe is successful.

The ERA5 reanalysis data available every 1 h with 0.25*0.25 horizontal grid spacing are used for initial and boundary conditions.

Hoewever, the wrf.exe (WRF v4.3) stop at first cycle of all domains (please see attachment: rsl.error.0000_wrf.exe.log).
The wrf.exe run successfully when using the GFS 0.25*0.25 data for initial and boundary conditions. [by the same namelist.input (only change the num_metgrid_levels)]

And, when I try to change max_dom from 3 to 2, the wrf.exe run successfully.

So, when max_dom = 3 is used, why does the wrf.exe stop?

Please sea the detail *.log in the attachment bellow. Thanks for your time.
