error: STOP NumForce: There is a problem with xm57 !
« on: March 31, 2016, 06:35:26 pm »
Hello I've been trying to run numforce on a optimized structure (see attached coord file). It gets to the last step and then I see following error: STOP NumForce: There is a problem with xm57 !

I'm not sure what the problem means. The version of turbomole I'm using is turbomole 7.02.

I've attached my  coord file, control file, numforce output file.
I also found files (xm57.problem, xm57.coord, and xm57.n280:2.err)  associated with xm57 that came from a generated directory called KraftWerk.
The xm57.problem was a blank file but the xm57.n280:2.err read:

This will be a vague answer, but did you check your permissions? I mean, do the Numforce script have full access to Turbomole files? It looks a bit like a permission problem...

Another tack may be some specific machine or memory problem... Did you try simply to restart the computation?

I've been able to run numforce calculations on similar systems with no problems. Yes I've tried running the job on different machines and restarting the calculation and it still didn't work. It's strange but when I reran the geometry optimization and then performed numforce again in this case it worked.
