I have WebMO version 15.0.002e running on a server, connecting to two remote servers, both running Gaussian 09. Both remote servers have Gaussian configured the same way, though one only has one core. The one with one core fails all jobs with

Route card not found.
Error termination via Lnk1e in /usr/local/g09/l1.exe at Wed Jun 17 23:58:28 2015.

in the log file. I can run jobs on that server through command line, and they work.
I have looked at the input file in the Preview tab in WebMO, and it is the same for both servers. A simple example:
#N HF/6-31G(d) SP Geom=Connectivity


0 1
O 1 B1
O 1 B2 2 A1

B1 1.5068818
B2 4.0049013
A1 179.43946

1 2 1.0 3 1.0
2 1 1.0
3 1 1.0

Clearly there is a route card! I can take that input and run it on command line, and it works correctly, but when submitted through WebMO, there is the error "Route card not found."
All servers are running CentOS.
Any suggestions for other things I can check?
Thank you very much for your help.

Can you please check (and post or email) a copy of the input.inp file (found in the job directory, which is EXACTLY what gets run) as well as the beginning of the output file. This would be useful information.

Thank you for your assistance.
This is the input generated in the Preview tab of the Job Options section:
#N HF/6-31G(d) SP Geom=Connectivity


0 1
H 1 B1
H 1 B2 2 A1

B1 1.3395916
B2 1.1215375
A1 103.03217

1 2 1.0 3 1.0
2 1 1.0
3 1 1.0

I'm having trouble finding the input file on the server - it doesn't seem to be in the scratch directory. Still looking!
Here are the top few lines from the error message for this job:

If you have not found a solution by now (which you most probably did) try doing the following:

Select "Execute Input File"; give it a "Job Name"; specify Gaussian input file "inputSelect File"; and most importantly copy and paste the same input file into the "Enter Text" box. Click "Execute Job"

That did it for me.

i'm doing the DFT calculation with the functional theory of B3LYP/LANL2DZ.
what dose this error mean?

String too long in BldStC.

Pay close attention to blank lines!

#P B3LYP/GEN Pseudo=read

comments..say for molecule w C, N, and Hg.
