How to run and save tranisent case on Cray XD1
Hey I am an inexperienced user of Fluent. I build a transient model and runs very well on my laptop. But It is transient model (1.5 million) and it took around 50 hours to get the resutls. Now, I want to run it on cluster (Cray XD1). But when I setup the case and submitted it in a queue manner (we cannot run interactively here). I only can get the first time step results and the job would be killed.

Do I need to setup in the Fluent differently when it is run on cluster? One thing that I don't feel right is when I setup the number of time steps as a certain value(i.e. 200 under Solve/iterate/ pannel)and then saved and exit. When I launch the case again, I find that number of time steps is always zero. Is that the reason to make my case run only the first time step? (there should be totally around 200 time steps)
