Vasp5.4.1 - BRMIX: old and new charge density differ

Postby pgarg8 » Fri Feb 03, 2017 6:27 pm

Hi All,
I am using Vasp 5.4.1 to run DFT calculations for Iron. I have calculated the lattice parameter using vasp5.4.1 but I get the following error when I run a bigger structure for Fe with 135 atoms containing screw dislocation core structure which changes the atomic binding around the core structure: "BRMIX: very serious problems the old and the new charge density differ".
I am using the following INCAR file for Fe:
SYSTEM = Fe
ISTART = 0
ICHARG = 2
NELM = 150
IALGO =38
LDIAG = .TRUE.
LWAVE = .FALSE.
LCHARG = .FALSE.
LREAL = Auto
ENCUT = 450 eV
ISYM = 0
NSW = 1000
ISIF = 2
IBRION = 2
EDIFF = 1.0E-5
EDIFFG = -0.01
ISPIN = 2
ISPIND = 2
MAGMOM=135*1
SYMPREC = 1.0E-6
KPAR = 16
NPAR = 10
ADDGRID = .TRUE.

I was able to run the same calculation for the big structure with 135 atoms successfully using vasp4.6. The only thing I changed is the new vasp executable that I compiled for vasp5.4.1.
Has anyone faced similar challenges with vasp5.4.1? And could anyone please help me in understanding if I have set any incorrect parameters in the INCAR file or it could be something to do with the compilation part?
