SHM parallel error. I honestly have no idea
 
I run the following:
blockmesh
decomposePar
snappyHexMesh 2 -overwrite -parallel

Then i get the following error:


--> FOAM FATAL ERROR:
bool IPstream::init(int& argc, char**& argv) : attempt to run parallel on 1 processor

From function UPstream::init(int& argc, char**& argv)

Thoughts? Thanks everyone.

After thinking about this error over night, I think I need to comment out the coefficient subdictionaries that I don't need. And I think I need to add "distributed" at the end of the decomposeParDict.

Dear Stark,

your error message says:
attempt to run parallel on 1 processor

And it is true:

You gave:
snappyHexMesh 2 -overwrite -parallel

this means you tell the computer to run a serial process in parallel, which it can not do.

You have to give the command as:

mpirun -np 2 snappyHexMesh -overwrite -parallel

I think there is a tutorial in the user guide that tells you how to run in parallel.

Regards,
Tom

Hey Tom,

Thanks for the help! I managed to figure it out.
