Hi Amber Users,
 As Ross had said,indeed the loss of solvent cap
information was an isssue.I tried adding the water
molecules first and then the watercap. The simulation
went through just fine.
 By the way I dont if there is anyway so that one can
preserve the cap information after loading the
modified pdb file in to xleap again.
 If anyone has any experience please share.
