(Relaxed) surface scan

Hi,

I have some questions concerning relaxed (and unreleaxed) surface scanning. Im quite new to GAMESS and not so familiar with its input (which is quite different from the programs i used so far ADF, Gaussian). I tried to perform a relaxed surface scan on tert-butyl-chloride (CH3)3-Cl for the C-Cl coordinate using DLCs but it didnt't work. Here's the input

$BASIS GBASIS=PM3 $END
$CONTRL SCFTYP=RHF RUNTYP=SURFACE NZVAR=1 $END
$CONTRL EXETYP=RUN $END
$STATPT OPTTOL=0.0005 NSTEP=100 NOREG=5 $END
$ZMAT DLC=.T. AUTO=.T. NONVDW(1)=1,14 $END
$ZMAT AUTOFV=.T. $END
$SURF IVEC1(1)=1,14 ORIG1=0 DISP1=0.1 NDISP1=20 $END

$END

With this input FF states "NO ATOMS TO MOVE IN SURFACE MAPPING" What's wrong ?

What would be the difference in input for an relaxed scan (except for runtyp=rsurface) ?


Thanks in advance
