We need to see your full input script, since it looks you're doing npt?

> Betreff: namd-l: periodic boundary condition in XY, hard wall in Z - errors
> Hi all,
> I would like to apply periodic boundary conditions only in X and Y
> directions. In my config file I used the following entry:
> # Periodic Boundary Conditions
> cellBasisVector1 70.0 0. 0.0
> cellBasisVector2 0.0 70.0 0.0
> cellBasisVector3 0.0 0 0.0
> cellOrigin 30.0 30.0 32.5
> wrapAll on
> margin 5
> When I submit the job it runs for a while until I see the following error:
> WRITING COORDINATES TO DCD FILE ar_force_out.dcd AT STEP 20750
> FATAL ERROR: Periodic cell has become too small for original patch grid!
> Possible solutions are to restart from a recent checkpoint,
> increase margin, or disable useFlexibleCell for liquid simulation.
> How can I address this error? Is this the right way to set up PBC in 2
> My simulation cell is actually around (~61 ~61 ~62), as measured by
> minmax. I played with numbers and noticed that my simulation runs
> longer if I increase both the margin and cell basis vectors.
> I saw some of the older threads in the archives where the margin was
> discussed but it's not clear how large should it be. If I want to run
> my simulation for 500 000 steps, what margin should I set up?
> Also, when choosing cell basis vector, how much bigger should it be
> than what is measured by "measure minmax"?
