I have a problem with running real.exe - wrfinput files are not created and appear following information:

wrf main: calling open_r_dataset for wrfinput
NetCDF error: No such file or directory
NetCDF error in wrf_io.F90, line 1077

FATAL CALLED ---------------
program wrf: error opening wrfinput_d01 for reading ierr= -1021

I have this problem since I am trying to use GFS data with 6 hour interval (before when I used data in 3 hour interval - this process goes correctly).

I will be grateful for any advice

Kind regards

Hi Michal,
1) Can you check your disk space and make sure you have enough room for the wrfinput_d01 file to write to the disk (this is different than memory)?
2) Please set debug_level = 0 in the &time_control section of the namelist and re-run real.exe
3) If so, will you please attach your namelist.input file, along with your full real.exe error file (e.g., rsl.error.0000)?
