OK, but how are you building the new input? If you want to use the
atomic positions as supplied in your previous email
0.000000000 0.000000000 0.000000000
0.250189867 0.250189867 0.250189867
0.000000000 0.250189689 0.250189689
0.250189689 0.000000000 0.250189689
0.250189689 0.250189689 0.000000000
you have to use CELL_PARAMETERS as supplied from the output of vc-relax,
and ibrav =0
For me it works using:
1.000758849 0.0 0.0
0.0 1.000758849 0.0
0.0 0.0 1.000758849
guessing the celldm expansion from your final positions.
Another solution would be to use the final celldm(1) and rescale the
BTW, during relaxations the code checks at each step if the initial
symmetry is conserved. If the symmetry had changed during the run the
code would have stopped with an error message.
