Error: RunFile label BirthCertificate

Hi guys, I hope you are doing well.

I am trying to get the minimum for a S1/S0 crossing and I get the following error message which I don't understand.

Do you know what could be the cause of that?


This is how the input file looks like

&GATEWAY
 coord=geom.xyz
 basis=ANO-S-VDZP
 Group=Nosymm
 RICD
Constraints
   a = Ediff
  Value
   a = 0.000
End of Constraints

>>> Do while

&SEWARD
 DoAnalytical


>>> If ( Iter = 1 ) <<<
 &SCF
>>> EndIf <<<

&RASSCF
 FileOrb=$Project.RasOrb
 Spin=1
 nActEl = 4
 RAS2 = 4
 CiRoot = 4 4 1
 RlxRoot=1
 Outorbital
&ALASKA
 PNEW
>>COPY $WorkDir/$Project.RunFile $WorkDir/RUNFILE2

&RASSCF
FileOrb=$Project.RasOrb
Spin= 1; Nactel=4; Ras2= 4
CiRoot = 4 4 1
RlxRoot=2
&ALASKA
PNEW

&SLAPAF
 ThrShld=1D-8,1D-6
 Iterations=50

>>> Enddo

And this is how I am running the program

module load openmolcas

export I_MPI_HYDRA_BOOTSTRAP=fork
export MOLCAS_WORKDIR=${TMPDIR}
export MOLCAS_PROJECT=molcas
export MOLCAS_MEM=16000
export MOLCAS_MOLDEN=ON
export MOLCAS_MAXITER=500
export MOLCAS_PRINT=verbose



pymolcas -np ${NSLOTS} $MOLCAS_PROJECT.input -f


cp $TMPDIR/* /data/scratch/btx721/Projects/SH_w_fromgame/Norbornadiene_Test/Gas-phase_Opt/CI

Re: Error: RunFile label BirthCertificate

That's not an error, it's a warning (useful only to developers, if they want to maybe improve performance). The "error" is the return code: rc=_RC_NOT_CONVERGED_. Apparently a RASSCF calculation didn't converge.
