Start star ccm+ remotely with mpiexec
I am fairly new to CFD but I have tried and searched for a while and I am still having some trouble to start Star CCM+ remotely on multiple computers.
I have a couple of computers all belonging to the same domain running Windows XP. What I would like to do is run a simulation on multiple computers and be able to log off of my user session.
What I manage to do is start a simulation on multiple computers via Star CCM+'s gui, but I have to keep the master process on the machine from where I launch the simulation (if I try otherwise Star CCM+ runs rsh and it fails for some reason), and so if I log off from my session the server process is closed and the computation stops.
I managed to start a server process on either computer on the domain, start the simulation by opening a client and then disconnect and log off of my user session. I do that by running mpiexec this way :
Could someone point out what I am missing ?
Also, once I logged off, I cannot close the server properly. If I open a client and close the simulation within it, I have a message saying that the server wasn't created from this client, I chose to close it nonetheless, but the processes linger and I have to kill them manually.
AlsoČ, appending -batch in the command line does not start the iterating process and I have to run the simulation by opening a client.
Hope I was clear enough,
