Subject: [AMBER] multisander error

Dear AMBER-list,
I am trying to do a thermodynamic integration calculation following the
online tutorial example for AMBER 9. I have created my .group files and
all their respective dependencies and a script file. When I submit the job
I receive the following error message:

Warning: no access to tty (Bad file descriptor).
Thus no job control in this shell.

  Running multisander version of sander amber9
     Total processors = 4
     Number of groups = 2

     Looping over processors:
        WorldRank is the global PE rank
        NodeID is the local PE rank in current group

        Group = 0
        WorldRank = 0
        NodeID = 0

        WorldRank = 1
        NodeID = 1

        Group = 1
        WorldRank = 2
        NodeID = 0

        WorldRank = 3
        NodeID = 1

rank 2 in job 1 compute-0-19_48554 caused collective abort of all ranks
  exit status of rank 2: killed by signal 9

I have no idea what is wrong and am hoping someone can assist me in this
detective work!

Thanks in advance,
