Error in solution.xdmf file when simulation resumes from restart files #2797
I noticed a strange error that appears in the solution.xdmf file when I restart an ASPECT simulation. The error only occurs when a simulation stops and then is resumed from the restart files. If a simulation completes in one go then the solution.xdmf file is fine.
When I start the simulation, the solution.xdmf file begins:
However, when the simulation stops and then I resume it from the restart files, the solution.xdmf file is changed so it appears:
Any line that previously had ' <DataItem Dimensions="1769472 2" ...' now has '<DataItem Dimensions="1769472 4294967295" ...'. All the number '2' values are replaced with '4294967295' after the simulation is restarted from the restart files.
This only occurs when I restart the simulation from the restart files. I noticed this on two clusters I had the software installed on, and a completely different user tested this with a different install on a different cluster and noticed the same error.
Because of the error in the solution.xdmf file, I cannot load the data into Paraview. However, if I find and replace '4294967295' with '2' then I can load the .xdmf file into paraview just fine. It appears that everything else in the .xdmf file is fine except for this strange error.
Let me know if that works, and close this issue if it works for you.
