Default Error finding variable RCOEF_SL1 (monte carlo radiation for solid)

Hello all,

I am getting this error during first iteration. Let briefly explain my simulation setup. I have steel enclosure with insulated walls. Enclosure consists of 2 chambers separated by glass plate. Bottom chamber has heat source inside. Since I have to also count with a radiation trought glass plate I have to turn on monte carlo model for this solid. As soon as I turn this on I get the error
----------------------------------
Error in subroutine FNDVAR :
7 Error finding variable RCOEF_SL1
7 GETVAR originally called by subroutine get_SEMISS_CSBELG

----------------------------------
I did first simulations with discrete transfer model for air domains and everything was ok so the error is connected with turning the monte carlo on for solid domain. I set up interface between glass plate and air domains so there si radiation conservative flux and set monte carlo for air and solid domain.

I am enclosing my ccl settings and will be very grateful if you can help me. Thank you very much

I also tried transfer mode "surface to surface" and turning on total energy for air domains. Error still persists

I figured it out. The problem was that I turned on radiation for one solid domain (transparent glass) and left it in default solid solid interface with other solid domains that didn have radiation turned on. This also happens for the fluids.
