Dear Abhishek,

 

PMEMD does not support the polarizable force fields (other than amoeba
through a separate executable). See page 200 of the AMBER 10 manual which
lists what is an isn't supported in PMEMD:

 

ipol!=0 In &cntrl. Polarizable force field simulations are not supported,
other than amoeba,

which is supported in pmemd.amba.

 

You will need to use sander.MPI instead.

 

All the best

Ross

Dear All
I have a situation that I am simulating rna molecule in a TIP3PBOX using
ff02 force field and salt libraries ionsjc_tip3p. While equilibration there
is a protocol PMEMD that has input file as shown below. Now if i use the
flag ipol=1 in all my sander input files the simulation crashes.
Now two options
1) I tried to skip this stage then got trouble when in last step of
minimization when i have no constrains on the RNA molecule.
2) if i turn off the flag igb=0 then it kills my periodic boundary
conditions of the solvation box.
Kindly suggest how can i run md without PME.
PMEMD input file is
 heat/dynamics holding RNA fixed
