Default CFX Pre & Post Startup Error

Hello everyone,

we currently run openSUSE 12.1 on our machines, however, we are thinking about upgrading to openSUSE 13.1 in the very near future.

On our testbed, so far, OpenFOAM 2.3.x and foam-extend 3.1 run flawlessly - not taking into account some hickups due to OpenFOAM specific quirks from time to time.

Next task on the agenda would be to setup and test a ANSYS 15 installation. License Manager Setup and Installation is done. Workbench is up and running within 10s, Design Modeler and ICEM GUIs work fine. CFX Launcher starts as expected. CFX Solver Manager works and we can run a *.def as test case in parallel without incident.

BUT: When we try to start CFX Pre or CFX Post, after a few minutes, we get following error:
Quote:
XXX@YYY:~/Work> cfx5pre
Aborting due to unexpected error:
comm::error: AppWindow::makeAllConnections - Error waiting for viewer connection
socketError: Socket::waitForConnection - Connection timeout after 120s

The application has encountered an unexpected problem and will now terminate:

Aborting due to unexpected error:
comm::error: AppWindow::makeAllConnections - Error waiting for viewer connection
socketError: Socket::waitForConnection - Connection timeout after 120s


Please report this error, along with the circumstances in which it occurred.

The following information may be useful to CFX support:

Unexpected error: Aborting due to unexpected error:
comm::error: AppWindow::makeAllConnections - Error waiting for viewer connection
socketError: Socket::waitForConnection - Connection timeout after 120s



The application has encountered an unexpected problem:

Qt has caught an exception thrown from an event handler. Throwing
exceptions from an event handler is not supported in Qt. You must
reimplement QApplication::notify() and catch all exceptions there.


Please report this error, along with the circumstances in which it occurred.

Alternatively, you may attempt to continue, but the application may be in an unstable state, and you should save your work and restart the application as soon as possible.

The following information may be useful to CFX support:

src/QtWarningHandler.cxx(49) : Expectation failed: Qt has caught an exception thrown from an event handler. Throwing
exceptions from an event handler is not supported in Qt. You must
reimplement QApplication::notify() and catch all exceptions there.

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'cue::ExpectImpl::ExpectException'
An error has occurred in cfx5pre:

/ansys_inc/v150/CFX/bin/linux-amd64/PreGui_ogl.exe was interrupted by
signal ABRT (6)
We tried to solve this problem by adding more and more QT packages - to no avail. Calling ANSYS Support didn't help much either: "Sorry, we do not support OpenSUSE 13.1"

Maybe one of you guys encountered the same problem and managed to solve it. Your help would be greatly appreciated :)

Best regards,
Victor

Hey guys,

since we are using openSuse 13.1, I don't know if it's working for you, too.

After adjusting the /etc/hosts file, I was able to use CFX Pre & Post. You need to specify your machine's IP, full host name and short host name:
Code:
123.456.78.9  host.domain host
Best regards,
Victor

These are the workbench level errors, and they do not tell you much about what the problem is.

You need to look at the output file of the CFX run. That will contain the detailed error information (hopefully, not always )

Hi,

I couldn't solve it but I think because of under relaxation factors. I didn't try again. reduce them below 0.3 for all of them. hope it works.

Thank you all the same. And I have known why. I changed my hostname from "localhost" to another name in CentOS 7, so CFX didn't work. If I change hostname back to localhost, it would work normally. Maybe this will help you. Good luck!
