How do you plot results for the full domain if symmetry was utilized in the analysis? Thanks so much for any information!

Use a transformation to get it to mirror at the symmetry plane. Some of the CFX tutorials do this, have a look there.

For those who are interested, I found a tutorial on ANSYS' site showing the steps using the Reflect/Mirror tool. With CFD-Post loaded, click File > Load State and select the .cst file. Right click in the graphics menu, and click Reflect/Mirror. Post asks "Which direction do you want the normal in?" Click the axis desired for mirroring the geometry. The .cst file should be located in the file structure dp0\CFX\Post. If the project involves multiple design points or cases, then go to the respective folders for the appropriate design point (dp1, or dp2, etc.) or for the appropriate case (CFX-1 or CFX-2, etc.).
