‚ÄčOpen the prmtop file in parmed.py and run the "checkValidity" command. If
it finds a problem, it will tell you how to fix it (if it can be fixed).

It's possible that you will have to reorder atoms to make molecules appear
contiguously. So I would suggest loading a coordinate file as well so that
you can write out both a prmtop and inpcrd file. So something like this:

parmed.py -i <input_file>

where <input_file> contains

parm your.prmtop
loadRestrt your.inpcrd
checkValidity
# if you are told to, do the following
setMolecules
# Write out both a prmtop and inpcrd
outparm fixed.prmtop fixed.inpcrd

Then try using fixed.prmtop and fixed.inpcrd for your simulations.

HTH,
