I am trying to ascertain convergence w.r.t. cutoff energy right now. Although I previously ran the identical input except for a different ecut (15 instead of 12) successfully, I now consistently get an error claiming that there is insufficient space.

I have tried running in scratch as well as my home directory so disk space shouldn't be a problem, especially if I previously was able to run this input (and have cleaned up the output). Is there another error that can arise with NWChem which can give rise to this error, or should I take this up with the batch system administrator? Thanks.

This is not a lack of physical space. This is due to the fact that in the plane wave code the lenght of a file name cannot be more than 30 characters. This file name is constructed from either the name you give in the nwpw block (which you didn't) or from the name given to the job in the start line. It then has to append .movecs. You can do the count on uo2no22-pspw-geom-pbe0-18 plus .movecs and you can see you exceed 30 characters.

Quick fix, shorten the name of the start line.

We'll address this in the upcoming release.

Yes, that seems to have done the trick. Thanks a lot---I've been messing around with this one for a couple of days.
