Unhappy No Residual or Monitor Plots Generated by .res File

Iratebandit is on a distinguished road

I've recently begun working with CFX on a unix machine using my universities computing server. I'm having severe difficulties generating residual plots from my .res and .out file.

I've been running my simulations using the following command:

cfx5solve -def "definition file.def" -initial-file "initial results file.res"

with a .def file that I used on my personal desktop which had no issue producing residuals when running through the gui. My .out file does list the residual values with no issue, however the plot panel in solver manager doesn't contain any data.

The current simulation I am running is a transient simulation and I have specified monitors in the .def file to be logged each coefficient loop. I have also attempted to run the ANSYS CFX tutorial "13. Non-Newtonian fluid flow in an annulus" and although the results seemed fine (near identical values measured in CFD post to a simulation I ran on my personal computer), I similarly could not generate a residual plot in solver manager.

I've looked through the documentation regarding command line CFX however I'm yet to find a solution to my problem. Would anyone have some suggestions I could try to resolve my problem? I would greatly appreciate your experience.

[Edit] Nevermind, issue appears to be created by differing CFX versions. Apologies for cluttering the forum
