   So with Cheby/SOR it works great but with the exact same options Cheby/SOR it behaves poorly? Are you using  some quantum computer and NERSc?

  This is because without Garkin it needs to restrict the current solution and then compute the coarse grid Jacobian. Since you did not provide a DM that has the ability to even generate coarse grid vectors the process can work. You need a DM that can provide the coarse grid vectors and restrict solutions. Did you forget to pass a DM to the solver?
