Hi Basil, > I have compiled parallel netcdf 4.1.2 using xlf and xlc compilers on > bluegene/P and os linux suse.

[NCF-23] https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/jira/browse/NCF-23 I may be wrong about that, but the error message in the file you attached indicated a failure to open an HDF5 file, as described in the bug web page ... > Please advise. My advice would be to try either the 4.1.3 version of netCDF or the more recent 184.108.40.206 C-netCDF and the 4.2 Fortran-netCDF releases, building the C library first and then the Fortran library, following the instructions here: For 4.1.3: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/docs/netcdf-install/ For 220.127.116.11: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/docs/building.html Sorry, but we lost our parallel-netCDF expertise when the developer got lured away last year, so I can't answer the question about the parallel make. I also see you're not setting the environment variables MPICC, MPIFC, and MPIF77, as recommended in a address@hidden mailing list, but I'm not sure if that's a problem: http://lists.mcs.anl.gov/pipermail/parallel-netcdf/2011-June/001193.html --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: OTC-268927 Department: Support netCDF Priority: Normal Status: Closed
