[gmx-users] Residue 'DUM' not found in residue topology database

'pdb2gmx' is mainly a tool to get the topology for (bigger) molecules
from a *.pdb file. 'pdbgmx' is expecting an entry in the *.rtp file for
the dummy atoms. You could add one in that file... (see further below)
But if the dummys only interact via nonbonded interactions it would be
more convient to write the topology by hand.
In the *.top file, you would need after the protein a new entry with
[ moleculetype ]
[ atoms ]
But you should also have this nonbonded interaction in the *nb.itp and
file of your force field and the atom definition in the *.atp file.
If there are also bonded parameters the new *.rtp entry would be better.
For this look at the definition of an aminoacid, or a single molecule
and write something similar for your dummy atoms.
Essential you would need the atoms definitions and charges, and then an
entry for which atoms is bonded to which.
But you should also have these interactions (nonbonded and bonded) in
the *nb.itp and *bon.itp files of your force field and the atom
definition in the *.atp file.
The basic informations for both ways are in chapter 5 of the manual.
Hope this gives some hints.
