Hi, thank you for the suggestion. I did load the visualise the log file
using QMTools. It looks fine.

I am not understanding while the rerun from the checkpoint file dosent
start. As mentioned above, it gives me an error like "ONIOM results not
found on unit 2."

Do you have any suggestion to restart the run, I just want to give it a
shot. Thanks.
