[petsc-users] pcfieldsplit for a composite dm with multiple subfields

I’m getting the following errors:
[1]PETSC ERROR: Argument out of range
[1]PETSC ERROR: Inserting a new nonzero (40003, 0) into matrix
Could this have to do with me using the DMComposite with one da holding the scalar parameters and the other holding the field variables?

Repeat to as fine a grid as you want. You can use DMRefine() and DMGetInterpolation() to get the interpolation needed to interpolate from the coarse to finer mesh.

>>> Perhaps there is another way around the above problem, but one thing I was thinking of trying would be to get away from direct solvers, and I was hoping to use field split for this. However, it’s a bit beyond what I’ve seen examples for because it has 2 types of variables: scalar parameters which appear globally in the system and vector valued field variables. Any suggestions on how to get started?
