Multi-state design with the error "unable to locate database file"


I am a new Rosetta user and learning to do the multi-state Ab design by following the RECON protocal. When I run it, I got the error said "unable to locate database file" even though I already listed the database path in .options. Could anyone help me to fix this problem? Here is the error message I got:

protocols.jd2.JobDistributor: (3) Parser is present.  Input mover will be overwritten with whatever the parser creates.
protocols.jd2.MPIWorkPoolJobDistributor: (3) Slave Node 3: Requesting new job id from master

And here is my .options file:

-database /root/Rosetta/rosetta_src_2018.09.60072_bundle/main/database/

-run:msd_randomize                    # Randomize order of input PDBs in multistate design

The error only showed when I run the mpi version of Rosetta, the normal single core version worked fine. And I already checked all the database files listed in the error message and I'm sure they are all there but Rosetta just couldn't find them.

I'm a little concerned about the presence of the literal "TYPE_SET_MODE" in the output -- that shouldn't be used for the name of any files, which makes me think that there might be a issue somewhere. I'm also curious as to why the string "/root/Rosetta/rosetta_src_2018.09.60072_bundle/main/database/" is showing up twice in the message.

My guess is that you have a typo somewhere in your inputs or database. Try running `grep -Rh 'TYPE_SET_MODE' /root/Rosetta/rosetta_src_2018.09.60072_bundle/main/database/` on the command line. All the lines printed should be things like "TYPE_SET_MODE full_atom", without any references to path. If not, I would re-download a fresh copy of the database.

I'd also check your input files, and see if there's any other place  (besides the -database option) where you might have accidentally put the database path.

You might also want to try running things in a clean directory, carefully copying over just those files you need (carefully examining each one). Rosetta can sometimes prefer files in the local running directory rather than the database, and depending on how that's set up, you can get issues and confusion.
