Hi

I need to know how can I install Ansys 14 on a dual processor machine to make use of all the available cores.


Yours,
Ehab

Just install the whole Ansys package. There is no separate procedure to make it compatible for parallel process.

Hi
I already installed the whole Ansys package.

When I used the parallel option in the Fluent, I received a message that the license is restricted to 8 cores only and we have 32 cores.


Yours,
Ehab

Sounds like you have a wrong license key or you have less licenses than you though... What do you have? A single HPC pack?

I don't get it. Your hardware does not seem to be the problem. It's your license. Obviously, your license thinks it is for 8 cores max. You say, you don't have an Ansys HPC license, which I don't understand, because as far as I know, HPC is the way to get an 8 core license. What kind of license do you have? It doesn't seem to be a standard Fluent license, because that runs just on a single core.

I guess you have an academic license. Some academic licenses have this limitations.

Academic licences do have multicore computation enabled. I have used upto 4. It seems that his licence is only for 8 cores. I know ANSYS sells the HPC pack in multiples of 4 (4,8,14) etc.

I remember that at university we could only use 4 processors at one time although our clusters has nodes with 8 and 16 cores.
