How to run potentialFoam and simpleFoam together .

I want to run the potentialFoam with few iterations and then run the simpleFoam using the same controlDict and fvSolution files , what changes are needed for openFoam2.1.0
Is it necessay to specify the residual controls in fvSolution file for simpleFoam?
Idea is to use results of potentialFoam for simpleFoam as initial conditions.

have a look at the motorbike tutorial. Exactly what you want (potentialFoam and then simpleFoam).

I exactly wanted to do the same, first initializing with potentialfoam and then running the simulation with simplefoam.
I compared the residuals and results with AND without initialization, BUT there is no difference at all. What could be wrong?
My workflow is to create a single mesh, after that decomposepar it, run potentialfoam parallel, run simplefoam in parallel and reconstruct it again in the end.
thanks a lot
