Restarting a failed UM run


I had a UM run going last week when ARCHER2 was taken offline, so I’ve tried to restart the run for the dumps. My run started at 19880901 and had simulated 6 months. The last dump had the name da19890301_00. Therefore, I’ve set um->namelist->Model Input and Output->Dumping and Meaning->astart to my dump file: /work/n02/n02/dangalea/archive/u-cg647/19890301T0000Z/cg647a.da19890301_00. I’ve also changed suite conf->Run Initialisation and Cycling->Model basis time to 19890301T0000Z. I’ve also set suite conf->Run Initialisation and Cycling->Bit compare with previously run CRUN to true after looking at this ticket. However, the atmos_main task fails with

?  Error code: 10
aborting job:

?        Please note, that if it is valid to do so for your job setup, you may change

?        * namelist:headers=i_override_date_time
?        * namelist:headers=new_date_time
?        Please see the metadata help text associated with these two variables for
?        more information.

Would you be able to help me figure out how to fix this?



You appear to have left reconfiguration on, so the suite reconfgured /work/n02/n02/dangalea/cylc-run/u-cg647/share/data/cg647a.ainitial, setting the year to 1989 and writing the result to /work/n02/n02/dangalea/archive/u-cg647/19890301T0000Z/cg647a.da19890301_00 ie overwriting what was there initially.

I’d be tempted to back up a cycle and try again, but switch off reconfiguration (and the build))
