There are two likely causes of a problem like this:

1. You made a mistake in calling sander: what exactly were the arguments
that you passed to the program?

2. Sander didn't like your input for the first run, and quit for some reason
before writing out the min_ntr.restrt file. Have you examined the output
from the first run? Does it appear to have terminated normally?

...good luck...dac
