Default Saving Fluent Surface Monitor Output File

fossu15a is on a distinguished road
I am having problems saving and writing to the surface monitor output files (defined in Solve -> Monitors-> surface) when running fluent in parallel. When I am running it on the local machine under 1 node the files are output properly. However when I am running in batch mode it would give the case and data file outputs, which are correct, but the surface monitor files are empty and do not contain any values in them. How can I solve this problem?

sbaffini will become famous soon enough
If you properly set the saving of the files than you could check in the Fluent folder (when i run in parallel on windows, fluent does not saves the file in the working folder but in the main one C:\Fluent.Inc\ntbin\ntx86, unless you specify it the whole path and not just the name of the file)
