Having problems running the WRF Preprocessing Sysmte (WPS)?

ext_pkg_open_for_write_begin error running geogrid

Postby epenning » Thu Mar 22, 2018 4:35 pm


I'm trying to run geogrid.exe but get the following error:

Parsed 25 entries in GEOGRID.TBL
Processing domain 1 of 1
Processing XLAT and XLONG
ERROR: Error in ext_pkg_open_for_write_begin.

I saw another post on this forum (viewtopic.php?f=21&t=304) recommending setting the WRFIO_NCD_LARGE_FILE_SUPPORT environment variable to 1 and then cleaning+configuring+compiling WRF and WPS so that they can handle large (>2 GB) file sizes. I attempted to do this, but geogrid returned the same error. Also, I don't think that any of the files I'm using are over 2 GB, and my grid is not very large. I have successfully run all of WPS and WRF previously, and only changed the region of interest and the gridding parameters for this current run. I was still linked to the same static geography data. Any idea what else could be going wrong?

Thank you,

In the namelist, check opt_output_from_geogrid_path = 'path'. Make sure the path exists and is writable.
