I am trying to run an exciation energy calculation for a lithium atom. Is there a way to force the initial HF calculation to follow a specific excited state configuration, i.e. to skip or leave some shells empty?

For example, I want to compute the energy of the state "1s2 3s1" so 2s orbital is skipped, but I received an error message:

OCC input inconsistent with ms2

My input section looks like:

occ,1.1,3.1;WF,3,1,1;
