Can anybody provide me coordinate file for MgO/Ag(100) surface for DFT calculations?

typically asking for coordinate files on this forum isn't going to be very 
useful, it is more for discussing the actual mechanics of running CP2K.

That said, I've tried to upload a file that contains a MgO/Ag model. This 
comes with no guarantee of correctness etc, but should show you what the 
structure looks like.

What I wanted to say was be _extremely_ careful with basis sets for this 
system. DZVP is not good. Try the new TZV2P molopt basis sets and see how 
they perform vs the literature. Also pick a vdW functional carefully.
