I am running polyA-polyTtutorial for amber8 on my
redhat9 machines which has amber7 installed on it.

Everything went fine untill I used following is xleap

>solvatebox model TIP3PBOX 8.0

I got the following error message

solvateBox : Aurgument #2 is type string must be of type : [unit]
usage :solvateBox <solute> <solvent> <buffter> [iso] [closeness]

I dont know what this error message means. But it doesnot solvate the DNA. And it doesnot save the polyAT_wat.prmtop and polyAT_wat.inpcrd files, since they remain empty.

** one interesting point is that, i dont have TIP3 files in the /amber7/dat/solvents folder.

If anybody has any idea please help !

thanks in advance.
