Have been someone successful in using the cyclic boundary condition in Of2.0?

I would guess it the same like in Openfoam 1.5 and 1.6. Depends on how you create your mesh. If you use e.g. Gambit have a look at this thread:
Currently I am switching to OpenFoam 2.0 and my testcase uses cyclic boundary conditions. But I still need some time to upgrade my solver and sgs-model.

kind regards,

What problems are you having with cyclic boundary conditions? We recently upgraded from 1.6 to 2.0 and only needed to fun the foamUpgradeCyclics utility on each case (though we aren't doing anything fancy).
