Invalid continue restart case name


I got this error in my experiment:
(shr_sys_abort) ERROR: (seq_infodata_Check) : invalid continue restart case name = test13
(shr_sys_abort) WARNING: calling shr_mpi_abort() and stopping

This is what I did.
I did a startup run first,
> create_newcase -case ~/data/ccsm4/experiments/test13 \
-compset F \
-res 0.9x1.25_gx1v6 \
-mach pegasus_intel_omp
Starting date was 1911-01-11 and I ran it for 10 days.

Then I tried to do a branch run which branches from the previous startup run.
I created a new case,
> create_newcase -case ~/data/ccsm4/experiments/test14 \
-compset F \
-res 0.9x1.25_gx1v6 \
-mach pegasus_intel_omp
and made the following changes to env_conf.xml:
> xmlchange -file env_conf.xml -id RUN_TYPE -val branch
> xmlchange -file env_conf.xml -id RUN_REFCASE -val test13
> xmlchange -file env_conf.xml -id RUN_REFDATE -val 1911-01-11

When I ran the model, it gave me error:
(shr_sys_abort) ERROR: (seq_infodata_Check) : invalid continue restart case name = test13

What does this mean? Is there any format requirement for RUN_REFCASE?

Thank you very much!



I just had this same problem. The solution was to change CONTINUE_RUN in the env_run.xml file to FALSE. CONTINUE_RUN needs to be set to FALSE when starting any kind of run for the first time. After the initial run, it can be changed back to TRUE.

Hi, Does it work for you now? I used the following component, --compset BW1850 --res f09_g17 The default RUN_TYPE=hybrid When the simulation crashed, I archived the restart file manually by running "case.st_archive". Then I changed "CONTINUE_RUN=TRUE" and the "RUN_STARTDATE=0011-01-0". I got the same error as you. Any ideas about this? Cheers, Xiang-Yu
