Hi,

I'm fairly new to OpenFOAM and am trying to run the rhoCentralFoam solver in parallel (with 8 processors). I keep getting the following error:

"--> FOAM FATAL IO ERROR:
Cannot find patchField entry for procBoundary0to3

file: home/mpiuser/OpenFOAM/mpiuser-3.0.1/run/henry/rhoCentralTest/processor0/0/p.boundaryField from line 25 to line 58.

From function GeometricField<Type, PatchField, GeoMesh>::GeometricBoundaryField::readField(const DimensionedField<Type, GeoMesh&, const dictionary&)

in file /home/openfoam/OpenFOAM/OpenFOAM-3.0.1/src/OpenFOAM/lnInclude/GeometricBoundaryField.C at line 209

FOAM parallel run exiting"

I have tried creating placeholder procBoundary entries in the 0/p, 0/T and 0/U files inside the boundaryField dictionary in each of those files:

boundaryField
{
inlet
{
type fixedValue;
value uniform (100 0 0);
}
... there are other patch entries here
procBoundary0to1 // this is what I tried to add (for each processor to processor connection)
{
type processor;
}
}

The error I get when I do this, however, is even more complicated and unintelligible. I feel like I am missing something simple. Is there a file or dictionary entry missing somewhere that is required for a rhoCentralFoam parallel run?

Thanks,

Henry

Sometimes we miss stupid things: this is solved with a simple

"#include $WM_PROJECT_DIR/etc/caseDicts/setConstraintTypes"

statement in each of the 0/* files.
