Default Parallel Fluent
Posts: n/a
Hy everyone, I'm trying to run FLUENT in parallel in two machines. Each one with Win 2000.

I'm following the user guide and on the DOS I type:

fluent 3d -t3 -pnet -cnf=c:\\hosts.txt -path\\robocop\

And my hosts.txt has

robocop robocop caverman

As you can see the robocop machine has 2 core.

When it stars the robocop the 2 nodes on it is ok, but the node on the caverman is not and I got this msn:

The system cannot find the file specified. Node 0 spawning Node 2 on machine "caverman" (unknown). The system cannot find the file specified.

0: mpt_accept: warning: connection timed out after 180 seconds Node 0 unable to spawn process on machine "caverman".

Does anyone know something about it??

Dear all users and Joe,

The problem was solved for the FLUENT parallel.

I don't understand one thing, I checked that the FLUENT was trying to access the following folder:


But there is NO \bin folder, so I created the folder and copied all the contents in the


to the new one.

After that, I runned the same command stated before on the DOS

fluent 3d -t3 -pnet -cnf=g:\lourival\hosts.txt -path\\robocop\

And every thing was OK, except that I got one error but when I run the case everything is OK.

Anyway, here is my experience and if someone had another one please let me know about it...
