When I start running iteration in parallel mode (8 nodes)

it shows the error in the first step like:
primitive error at node 0: Cell_Function_Values: unrecognized function: static,

primitive error at node 1: Cell_Function_Values: unrecognized function: static,

...etc. for all of 8 nodes.

Then if I start running in serial mode, I got the error like

Cell_Function_Values: unrecognized function: static

Anybody knows what is going on here? My cell volume skewness is less than 0.81, though there are about 18M cells. And I tried disabling both energy and turbulence equation already...

Any help is appreciated.

Hey, I found your post while I was trying to find a remedy for the same error message. I was able to find a fix for my situation and thought I'd share it in case it will help in the future.

In my case the problem was that I still had a few custom monitors defined to observe the progress of the simulation. However I had recently changed my modeling methods, so one of the variables I was monitoring no longer existed, resulting in this error for every node after the first time step. Simply removing these monitors fixed the issue for me.

I got the same problem. After read your comment, I removed the parameter monitors. It worked well.
