I am trying to create an input file for a long simulation (7 years) using ERA-Interim dataset. The problem is that wrflowinp file will have only 10000 time step when i run real.exe and the file does not cover my entire simulation. I think that somewhere in the WRF code there is a hard-coded limit for time dimension but i am not sure where. I just use grep to find it and found external/io_netcdf/wrf_io.F90 file. There is a MaxTimes variable that is set as 10000. So, i increased it and recompile the code but it did not help me. So, could you point me out the right place that sets the limits.


Can you send me the following:
1) namelist.input
2) rsl.out.0000 (or equivalent log file from the real.exe run)
3) Your modified wrf_io.F90 file
4) Let me know the version of WRF you are using
