ERROR #001100279 for a Rotating Fluid Domain

I am using CFX 11.0 and have the folowing problem with the solver. It will crash during the second iteration step and give the following error messages:

ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction. Message: Could not invert control surface Ap

ERROR #001100279 has occurred in subroutine ErrAction. Message: Stopped in routine ASS_GLOBCS_IAP

I am investigating a channel flow on the segment of a rotating disc. Hence I have set the Fluid domain on rotating about one global axis. Correspondingly I have set all boundaries as rotating, as well. I should add that I am investigating a heat tranfser problem, so I also have interfaces to my solid domain.

The error messages will not occur when the fluid domain is set on stationary. However for my problem that makes no sense physically.

I appreciate every hint on this type of problem.

Regards, Andy

I have the same problem but nobody answered to me

I guess my answer is too late for both of you, but maybe it'll help somebody else one day :)
I've had the same problem. In my case it helped to restart the simulation with a much smaller (factor 50) timestep. Then I increased it step by step to the value I wanted. My case was a transient simulation of air between 2 concentric cylinders, where one of them was rotating (Taylor-Couette-Flow).

Thanks, Arevik. I'm always upset when people figure out their problem but don't update the threads.
