Dear Gromacs users,
 I am new to gromacs and I am trying to simulate a graphene sheet in vacuum
using gromacs 5.1.4. My sheet contains 216 atoms and I have followed the
tips at
to construct my topology. I made sure my box was periodic​​ and I used the
following X2top command:
gmx x2top -f gra.gro -o gra.top -ff graphene -name GRA -pbc -noparam

This generates 324 bonds, 648 angles as it should. I corrected the dihedral
function to 3, added periodic_molecules = yes and pbc = xyz to my mdp file.

My  simulation runs fine but mdrun reports "There were 44 inconsistent
shifts. Check your topology"  at the end of the run. I am not using
pressure coupling.

Here are my topology  mdp and coordinates:

I have been unable to determine the source of this error even after going
through many posts in the mailing list. If someone can take a look at these
simulation files and point me in the right direction then I will be very
Thanks a lot in advance.
