Trying to run a GAMESS job on the enterprise version of WEBMO. I'm using 2005 version of gamess. Maybe it is too old of version? DDIKICK complained with the following error. It seems it can't open the input file. I confirmed that the file exists on the node when it attempted to run. I was able to submit manually.
Distributed Data Interface kickoff program.
Initiating 1 compute processes on 1 nodes to run the following command:
open: No such file or directory
apparent state: unit 7 named `pwd`/$JOB.dat
lately writing direct unformatted external IO
ddikick.x: application process 0 quit unexpectedly.
ddikick.x: Fatal error detected.
The error is most likely to be in the application, so check for
input errors, disk space, memory needs, application bugs, etc.
ddikick.x will now clean up all processes, and exit...
ddikick.x: Sending kill signal to DDI processes.
ddikick.x: Execution terminated due to error(s).

I would definitely recommend trying to install the most recent (or at least A recent) version of GAMESS. They have changed many, many features regarding how jobs of run over the years, and it was difficult to maintain total backward comparability.
Thankfully, compiling / installing recent versions of GAMESS is fairly straightforward, a big step up from the past.
