Question What does the message "This case has only outlets" mean?

knax is on a distinguished road
1. My fan simulation on Fluent is displaying an error after initialization: "This case has only outlets". Whereas, I clearly have an inlet inside the fluid domain. Simulation diverges shortly afterwards. Can you explain why this is happening?

2. Should an inlet face always be exposed to free space on one half and to fluid domain on the other?

Well, Fluent really disagrees about your inlet statement. So, judging from your second question, you did something unusual with this inlet, such as changing an interface into an inlet. Don't do that, is the simple answer.
