aloesch is on a distinguished road
In a FLUENT parallel processing job across a Windows network, what should the format of each line in the hosts file be? Should it be just the computer name, e.g. "pc102-b" or should it include the workgroup "workgrp.pc102-b" or just the IP "" or is it something else, altogether? Thanks.

-mAx- will become famous soon enough
i am not familiar withe Windows Parallel, but with Linux.
anyway, there is a workaround: in Parallel/Network Configure add one node.
Spawn the node.
Then go in save... it will write for you the host file.
Juste check what it contains.
