Could you please advise on how to > proceed with this? You have to use a more recent version of HDF5, 1.8.8 or later, with netCDF-4.3.2. There was a bug in HDF5-1.8.7 and earlier versions that we didn't test for in the corresponding netCDF version 4.1.3. The current netCDF version 4.3.2 detects the HDF5 bug when built with HDF5-1.8.7 or earlier, but builds fine with HDF5 versions 1.8.8 and later. If you have to rebuild HDF5 from source anyway, I would recommend just using the latest version 1.8.13. --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: KTF-727377 Department: Support netCDF Priority: High Status: Closed
