It would be greatly appreciated if anybody out there could help with the 
following problem.

I am running WRF 3.2.1 with three nests. The D02 and D03 starts 6 hours 
later than D01 the coarse grid. The model runs ok for D01, but stopped 
after output the first time period for D02. The error message is: "... 
Could not find matching time in input file wrfout_d02_1970-01-11_18:00:00".
Details are in the attached wrf_log.txt. Both MPI run and serial (one 
cpu) run have the same problem.
Why here says the input file wrfout_d02..?

Another problem I noticed is the message about "must be old WPS". I am 
running new WPS from 3.2.1 package. In my case, I got data from a GISS 
model output, and it is converted to WRF intermediate format. So, I ran 
only geogrid.exe and megrid.exe.

Thank you in advance for any help. The namelist.input is also attached.
