1. Does energy minimization complete adequately? Can it proceed further (lower
emtol than 1000)?
2. If you have used flexible water, you should re-minimize with
constraints/rigid water. It is common that a minimized system has badly
distorted the geometry of one or more water molecules.
3. "Out of the box" is not an issue if you are using PBC, because no such thing
exists. If something has gone flying out of the rendered unit cell (i.e. large
coordinates), that suggests severe instability of the initial configuration and
would be a likely source of the problem.
4. What force field are you using?
5. What is the source of your DOX.itp parameters? What is DOX?
