nodelist being ignored during paralleling

Dear all,
      The code runs successfully on single processor. And it works well without "++nodelist" option on multi processors with the command "./charmrun ./namd2 +p2 <configuration files> >$outfile".
  There are totally 64 clusters named C0101, C0102,C0103 and so on. The code aotomatically runs on clusters C0101 and C0102 (I submit the job on this cluster). I want to run the job on clusters C0104 and C0105, what should I do?
  I submit the job on cluster C0104 and the code will run on clusters C0101 and C0104. I use the ++nodelist option in the command line following the notes of namd. However, NAMD ignored this option and recognized the node file as the configuration file. The command is:
  ./charmrun +p2 ./namd2 ++nodelist $nodefile $configfile >$outfile
  I have tried to change the order of these options but it improved nothing.
  By the way, the ++verbose option has also been ignored by NAMD. I wonder does the code have NOT been installed correctly?
  I have run the code on a linux clusters and I compiled NAMD with MPI and icc.
  If someone could give me some advice, I would be most appreciative.
  The error messages are listed below:
