running simulations in successive steps

Dear NAMD users,
I need to perform a simulation for about 30 ns and I want to know if it is
reasonable to devide the simulation in 6 steps each step is performed for 5
ns? and can I combine the results of 6 different simulations together?

Another question:

I run a simulation (NPT) for 5 ns and I did not get error, but when I
submitted the second simulation using the restart.coor, .vel, and .xsc
files of previous simulation after 64000 steps I got the "constraint
failure" error which is usually because of bad initial structure, while I
started the simulation from a successful NPT simulation.

Any help will be appreciated!
