AMBER: regular ewald sum in Amber8

I am a new comer to Amber, and trying to test the regular ewald
calculations in Amber8.

According to the Amber8 manual, I simply set ew_type = 1 and ran sander.
The program ended up with:

 Exceeding lastrst in get_stack
   lastrst = 1566538
   top_stk= 1433106
   isize = 477702
   request= 1910808
  Increase lastrst in the &cntrl namelist

I checked the manual, but could not find the keyword "lastrst". Were
there any other keywords required to be added into the input file? In
addition to set ew_type=1, should I also set use_pme=0?

Kind regards,
