You can try 1) ensure that the input file was created with WRF v4 pre-processors, or
2) use force_use_old_data=T in the time_control record of the namelist.input file

and when I use " force_use_old_data=T"
I get below as an error:-

Hi,
All of these errors indicate that your input files (if this happens when you run real.exe, then it means the met_em* files) have different domain sizes than your namelist.input file is requesting. You need to make sure you are setting the namelist variables to match those for wps.
 
metgrid data has this which is similar to what it is reading :-

:TITLE = "OUTPUT FROM METGRID V4.5" ;
:SIMULATION_START_DATE = "2023-09-10_08_00_00" ;
:WEST-EAST_GRID_DIMENSION = 73 ;
:SOUTH-NORTH_GRID_DIMENSION = 81 ;
:BOTTOM-TOP_GRID_DIMENSION = 34 ;
:WEST-EAST_PATCH_START_UNSTAG = 1 ;
:WEST-EAST_PATCH_END_UNSTAG = 72 ;
:WEST-EAST_PATCH_START_STAG = 1 ;
:WEST-EAST_PATCH_END_STAG = 73 ;
:SOUTH-NORTH_PATCH_START_UNSTAG = 1 ;
:SOUTH-NORTH_PATCH_END_UNSTAG = 80 ;
:SOUTH-NORTH_PATCH_START_STAG = 1 ;
:SOUTH-NORTH_PATCH_END_STAG = 81 ;
 
Can you attach your namelist.input file and namelist.wps file so I can take a look? Thanks!
 
sure, thank you. Please find the attached namelists

Thanks for sending those. Can you now do the following:

1) In the wrf running directory, issue
Code:
ls -ls >& ls.txt

2) I assume you're getting this error when running real.exe. If that's the case, then issue
Code:
ncdump -h met_em.d01.2023-09-09_00:00:00.nc >& ncdump_met.txt

or, if you are getting this error when running wrf.exe, then issue
Code:
ncdump -h wrfinput_d01 >& ncdump_wrfinput.txt

and then please attach the above *.txt files, as well as the full error log (e.g., rsl.error.0000). Thanks!
 
Thank you for your response; the issue was resolved by downloading GEOS files.
