Hi,
I am trying to do run on multi-processors using decomposePar. However, after the first processor file is created, error appears that:

Code:
bash-4.1$ decomposePar

kindly advise. I am creating a grid which has 740881 cells using blockMesh and snappyHexMesh and exporting this grid to my simulation folder for flow simulation.

Thanks

Greetings Manm and welcome to the forum!

I have to say that the error message is very clear on what went wrong:

Are you able to create that directory manually?

Best regards,
