[EnergyPlus_Support] Solar Distribution

Hello All,

I keep getting this error -

  ** Severe  ** Problem in interior solar distribution calculation (CHKBKS)
   **   ~~~   **    Solar Distribution = FullInteriorExterior will not work in Zone=114718
   **   ~~~   **    because vertex 1 of back surface=P_114718_5_0_0 is in front of receiving surface=W_114718_2_0_0
   **   ~~~   **    (Dot Product indicator=26.0348)
   **   ~~~   **    Check surface geometry; if OK, use Solar Distribution = FullExterior instead.

What could be the possible reason?

I am simulating a passive solar scenario with trombe walls.
