when i run the two way nest with the two input , the rsl.error.0000 file showde me as follow:
what dose this mean?

d02 2005-08-28_08:08:00 2 points exceeded cfl=2 in domain d02 at time 2005-08-28_08:08:00 hours
d02 2005-08-28_08:08:00 MAX AT i,j,k: 78 22 21 vert_cfl,w,d(eta)= 2.090222 35.18721 3.1394452E-02

This means that the model is generating NaN values. This most often occurs when the time step is too large. What do you have the horizontal resolution and time step set to?

You could try a 30 second time step.

The error you are seeing violates the CFL criterion at 2 grid points. Sometimes this indicates the numerical solution is unstable and will eventually cause the model to blow up (crash), but sometimes this happens at a few points and eventually settles down. Ideally, you don't want to see CFL errors since there is noise generated in the model that can have rather unrealistic effects. If it is short lived, you can call it noise, but if it is pervasive then you will want to understand what is causing it.
