CCL:G: Gaussian Basis set for molecule contains C H O N P Ru



 Sent to CCL by: "Duc  Vu" [rigitpc-mail%x%yahoo.com.vn]
 To whom it may concern,
 I try to do a geometry optimization for a molecule that contain C, H, O,
 N, P and Ru using Gaussian 09 software. The input file contain the
 following:
 Ru 0
 sdd
 ****
 C H N O P 0
 6-31g*
 ****
 to specify which basis set is used for the elements in the molecule.
 However, when I submitted the job, it gave the infamous error 2070 Link
 died!.
 I know for sure that the basis set 6-31g* should contain P as well but
 it's not working. I don't know if there is any other reason though.
 When I tried the same job but with the following:
 Ru 0
 sdd
 ****
 C H N O 0
 6-31g*
 ****
 P 0
 3-21g*
 ****
 the job ran fine without giving the 2070 error. Am I missing something in
 the input file? Thank you for your help!
