[gmx-users] Nano-structures equilibration

Thank you very much, Alex. I also performed the process on GPU, and I got the below error:
step 1: Water molecule starting at atom 96743 can not be settled.Check for bad contacts and/or reduce the timestep if appropriate.Wrote pdb files with previous and current coordinates
WARNING: Listed nonbonded interaction between particles 4321 and 4328at distance 21.231 which is larger than the table limit 1.853 nm.
This is likely either a 1,4 interaction, or a listed interaction insidea smaller molecule you are decoupling during a free energy calculation.Since interactions at distances beyond the table cannot be computed,they are skipped until they are inside the table limit again. You willonly see this message once, even if it occurs for several interactions.
IMPORTANT: This should not happen in a stable simulation, so there isprobably something wrong with your system. Only change the table-extensiondistance in the mdp file if you are really sure that is the reason.
I would appreciate any help.

You have performance-related errors, maybe try a different number of 
ranks, or another machine, or OpenMP instead of MPI -- hope others will 
be able to comment on technical issues.
Your question was whether you should abandon nanostructure equilibration 
because of this -- the answer is of course no.
