I am simulating a flow over a cylinder, to find the motion of the cylinder due to the vortex formation. After setting up the entire file in CFX_pre, i get the following error:

CFX_SOLVER_BASIC_MP_LIMIT does not exist in the ANSYSLI pool.

An error has occured in cfx5solve:

The ANSYS CFX solver could not be started, or excited with return code 255:
-No results file has been created.

Licensing problem. Talk to your IT people and find out what CFX licenses you have available.

Look like your license is node limited. Your model now exceeds the allowed number of nodes.

Hey Ghorrocks... thanx man !!!! It did work.....I re-meshed it but reduced the number of nodes just to check if it was node related problem....... and it did work.......

I reduced the mesh nodes from 72083 to 1941. The mesh quality is pathetic but still the problem is known now.

Regards,

@ Ghorrocks: I tried a variety of combinations and got the following results:

I tried running a dynamic mesh flow over a cylinder with 402036 elements and 72083 node and it failed to run.It gave error 255. I then reduced the number of nodes to 1941 and element to 9586 with the same mesh type and it gave results.
I thought it was the node specific license issue. SO just out of curiosity I meshed 4 different cases (for stationary cylinder) having the # of nodes to be 1900, 72000, 40200, 109565. These case have no UDF written with no dynamic mesh deformation., surprising all worked pretty fine ??? .

My question's are as follows:
1.) If the ANSYS license is node specific, then why did it work the second time (stationary cylinder case)???

2.) The tutorial which works just fine had a mesh with 18442 nodes. 2nd ,3rd and 4th cases have nodes greater than 18422 but still it worked ???

I don't know what the node count limit is. You will have to chase that you yourself.

Sounds like you are getting a different error with your error 255 run so you can't use that to establish the node count limit.
