Dear colleagues,
I was trying to run wrf but the program killed along the line
but to my surprise it generated the wrf output:
wrfout_d01 and wrfout_d01

I have checked for syntax error there is none

and I checked the rsl,out.0000 there were no error flags
I also checked rsl.error.000. then I noticed this two statement bellow

open_aux_u : error opening auxinput5_d01_2011-09-01_00:00:00 for reading. 100
Tile Strategy is not specified. Assuming 1D-Y

kindly find the two rsl files here as an attachment for proper review

with regards

Please change the following namelist options from:
w_damping = 0,
diff_opt = 0,
km_opt = 1,
damp_opt = 0,


w_damping = 1,
diff_opt = 1, 1,
km_opt = 4, 4,
damp_opt = 0,

Then try again.
Thank you so much
I effected the changes you suggested but there is no difference
the situation remain the same
