Echidna is on a distinguished road
First of all i use Ansys Mechanical (FEA), not CFX.
I am trying to setup a distributed network with no result until now.
Here is my configuration:

Supermicro 2x Xeon X5670, 16GBs of DDR3 ECC RAM, Win10

Node 2
HP Proliant DL180 G6, 2x Xeon X5670, 96GBs of DDR3 ECC RAM, Win10

Both systems are compatible i suppose.
Same CPUs, same chipset, same type of RAM (DDR3 ECC).
Same OS, same installation path for Ansys and Intel MPI.

Right now i have the two systems connected togheter through Gigabit Ethernet to test the connectivity. I have already ordered a pair of Infiniband 4x QDR cards and a suitable cable.

I have followed all the instructions found here:

Regarding MPI, i installed the software on both systems and finally cached my Windows password on both systems. The Windows account name and password is the same for the 2 systems.
Only computer name (host) is different.

I populated the hostnames in ANS_ADMIN 18.1 successfully (see attached pic). I did the same on both machines!

Then i go to Mechanical APDL product launcher (from SUPERMICRO machine) to run an official benchmark.
See attached picture for File management tab
See attached picture for File HPC tab

Then i click "Run" but nothing happens.

I think i have done all the necessary steps but nothing happens.
Anyone can help?
Thanks in advance!
