Thanks for your reply "mgduda".
I set start date for domain 2 is 2107-06-01_00:00:00 as same the start date for domain 1.
Can you little guide me, how can i come over this error.
I have attached screenshot of namelist.wps already.
The starting year for domain 1 is 2017, while the starting year for domain 2 is 2107. I assume you mean to start all domains in the year 2017, in which case you will need to correct the starting year for domain 2.
Thank you, you are right.
I did it.
Please read also my post i posted in WRF model section as i am facing errors while running ./real.exe
Thank you again to make me correct.
