yes I have run WPS successfully, I have met_em files.
As per online tutorial the data I have downloaded that is FNL data. I have used same Vtable that is used for GFS.
And it is showing the above error.
I guess those data in our website are pretty old and corrupted. Please download new data from here

Then try again. Let me know fi you still have problems.
I'm using WRF v3.9.1.1 and facing an error while running ./real.exe. I'm a beginner and not sure what this error is talking about. Please have a look into my rsl.out, namelist.input, namelist.wps file and let me know how to fix this.
