This is way to strong a restraint. Consider using a value at least 100 times

You don't give any error message, but it looks like you did not include the
group input required when ntr=1.

This is way too big for a solvated, periodic simulation; use the default of 8.

Run as long as you can. Presumably(?) you have already done a gas-phase or
implicit solvent refinement using simulated annealing. Solvated refinement
should only be a final step, since you won't explore all that much
conformational space.
