Dear all,

I have successfully compiled the WRFDA version 4.3 on our supercomputer with intelmpi, netcdf 4.6.1 and hdf5/1.10.3. I am able to update boundary conditions with the output from WRF3.9.1.1. However, the da_update_bc.exe failed to update boundary condition with the outputs from WRFV4.3.
Even though I set use_theta_m=0 and hybrid_opt=0, the utility still fails and returns the following errors:
ncopen: filename "./wrfvar_output": NetCDF: HDF error

Has anyone encountered the same issue? Any ideas on how to resolve it?
Thank you so much for your time.
