[molpro-user] geometry optimization using ecps and rccsd(t)

Every geometry optimization I attempt using rccsd(t) on a system where I use effective core potentials crashes.  For example. here is the command I use from teh input file:








The rccsd(t) calculation runs once successfully.  However, when the optimization starts, I get this from the log file:

1PROGRAM * CCSD (Restricted open-shell coupled cluster)     Authors: C. Hampel, H.-J. Werner, 1991, M. Deegan, P.J. Knowles, 1992

 Convergence thresholds:  THRVAR = 1.00D-12  THRDEN = 1.00D-08

 CCSD(T)     terms to be evaluated (factor= 1.000)

 Number of closed-shell orbitals:   7 (   2   1   1   0   1   1   1   0 )

 Number of external orbitals:     177 (  34  21  21  12  35  21  21  12 )

 Memory could be reduced to 11.20 Mwords without degradation in triples

 Number of N-1 electron functions:              14

 Number of N-2 electron functions:              91

 Number of singly external CSFs:               374

 Number of doubly external CSFs:            291554

 Total number of CSFs:                      291928

 Molecular orbitals read from record     2140.1  Type=MCSCF/NATURAL (state 1.1)

 ?Error: invalid orbital type for MPn or triples: NATURAL

 This error exit can be avoided using the IGNORE_ERROR option on the ORBITAL directive

Please note that I HAVE selected ignore_error under the orbital directive for rccsd(t) in the input file.

Is there any way to make this work?

Thank you.
