CICE history not moving to short-term archive

I am having a unique issue with a case I am running on yellowstone:casedir: /glade/p/work/mmills/case/b.e13.BHISTW5TCN.f19_g16.beta17_stratmam.008.1.6-1.6-1.2.thr1.6notrop.NoVolcrundir: /glade/scratch/mmills/b.e13.BHISTW5TCN.f19_g16.beta17_stratmam.008.1.6-1.6-1.2.thr1.6notrop.NoVolc/runshort-term archive: /glade/p/cesm/wawg_dev/mmills/archive/b.e13.BHISTW5TCN.f19_g16.beta17_stratmam.008.1.6-1.6-1.2.thr1.6notrop.NoVolc/This case has already run from 1990 to early 2007. When I look in the ice directory in the short-term archive, I see nothing under hist (or init). When I look in the run directory, I see files for each month named: .cic.YYYY-MM.ncIn other cases run with the same code base, I find monthly files in the short-term archive under ice/hist named .cice.h.YYYY-MM.nc, e.g.: /glade/p/cesm/wawg_dev/mmills/archive/b.e13.BHISTW5TCN.f19_g16.beta17_stratmam.006.1.6-1.6-1.2.thr1.6notrop/ice/histDoes my new run have a case name that is too long, causing truncation of the cice file names?

Assuming that this is a truncation problem, I have manually moved the *.cic.* files to the short-term archive, and renamed them to *.cice.h.*

Hey Mike,That is a good short term remedy. You can also add some source mods to change the history file name length (and I would also recommend the restart file name length) from char_len to char_len_long.Dave

The files are ice_history_fields.F90 (CICE4) where you change history_file to char_len_long. Looks like restart_file is already done.Dave
