 This calculation should take longer than the geometry optimization to run. Once it is finished, check the number of warnings and if the calculation converged. Sometimes it does not converge within the maximum number of iterations we set in the input file. If this is the case, you can increase the number using the keyword ''​MAX_SCF''​. This calculation should take longer than the geometry optimization to run.
