Hi Damian,

this should work just fine without requiring you doing anything special 
(even setting input occupancies) as long as the input PDB file is 
correctly formatted. This is explained in details in phenix.refine manual:


Alternatively you can send me (to my email address, not the entire 
phenixbb) the PDB file and I will tell what's causing the problem.
