GFS 0.25 Historical Data

I'm trying to put together historical WRF runs off the GFS .25 data. I believe it goes back to Jan 2015 with that resolution.

It's not on the NOMADS servers I've used in the past. At least not further back than the last month or so. It does look like ucar/ncar has it:
NCEP GFS 0.25 Degree Global Forecast Grids Historical Archive

Has anyone used this dataset? Does it have all the fields necessary to initialize the WRF? I compared it to Vtables but got a few conflicting views on what fields were included. Thanks for any thoughts, or if there is a better source for this.

Did you have any luck using this dataset? I am trying to do the same thing, but the filenaming protocol seems to have changed so I am not sure which files to download now.
