ADC(2) Optimization?

Hello everyone
I am trying to run an S1 optimization with ADC(2) and was wondering if this is possible with Q-Chem. It doesn’t say too much in the manual about it. We used the following input and an optimization job did run, but with HF-SCF instead of ADC(2).

$rem
JOBTYPE OPT
METHOD adc(2)
BASIS def2-TZVP
MEM_TOTAL 100000
MEM_STATIC 1000
EE_SINGLETS 2
CC_STATE_TO_OPT [1,2]
PCM_PRINT 1
SOLVENT_METHOD pcm
ADC_PROP_ES true
GUI 2
$end

Any thoughts?

ADC(2) does not have analytic forces implemented in Q-Chem, but the calculation should still proceed using numerical forces. For some reason this job does not execute an ADC calculation at all, and I submitted an issue about that. We will post an update here once the issue is resolved.
