Thank you very much for your reply.
After checking my log file, it seems my Metal ion cannot form a stable
coordination bonds in simulation.
the first 10 missing interactions, except for exclusions:
LJ-14 atoms 1180 1572 global 1180 1572
The number 1572 is my metal ion. And 1180 is an atom close to it in space.
Because it says "the first 10 missing interactions", but the file only
shows one missing interaction here LJ-14 atoms 1180 1572. It seems strange.
When I checked the trr file, the metal ion position shift away from its
I will try to redo mcpb process.
