Under the simulation settings, turn Off the "Run for Sizing Periods", telling E+ it should not output the requested variables for the Design Days, and turn on "Run for Weather File Run period" telling E+ it should simulate the weather file and output variables for it.

Turning off "Run For Sizing Periods" doesn't mean that your model won't autosize, just that it won't also simulate and report for them.
