Hi,
I installed Star-CCM+ on my Ubuntu 14.04 LTS successfully in my office HPC. How to lanch it? Wats the command of the file name I should look for?

I installed it in /opt/

Any ideas please. Thanks.

And also how to setup environmental variable to link it to my license file?

your system could be different, but I have to use an SSH client and first navigate to the directory where the file I want to open is saved. (if creating a new file, just go to the directory you plan to save to).

then send the following command(s):

starccm+ -server -power -np <x> <filename>.sim

where;
<x> is the number of cores (or compute processes) you want to use
<filename> is the name of the file you want to open (minus extention, so not filename.sim.sim)

if you don't have a power on demand license and are still going to solve in parallel just drop the -power command.

if opening a new file, drop the filename and it will start a new session with a blank file.

And if you want to launch Star-CCM+ in batch :
starccm+ -batch -power -np <> "filename.sim" -licpath <> -podkey <>

I've installed STAR-CCM+ on Ubuntu 14.04. I use a PoD license key, hence, used the Express-PoD-Installation. I receive the error :'Invalid License Server' - no CDLMD vendor daemon found.

I've also tried the custom installation which completes without errors.

In either case, there is no option to create a new sim/ load sim under 'File'. I am clueless with this situation. I've checked to make sure the ports 1999 and 2099 are active/open with nmap. Kindly advise.

Hi Vivek,

have you tried stating the licence server explicitly like jordan suggested? (eg. starccm+ -power -podkey ... -licpath 1999@flex.cd-adapco.com ...)

Maybe you should consider to contact the costumer service. They usually respond quickly.

With regards,
Sebastian

bluebase,

Yes, I've been in touch with CD-adapco. I'll give the explicit license server specification a shot. Thanks!

Hello together,

I just installed star ccm+ on my linux mint 17.3 system. During the installation, I got the 'invalid license server' error but the installation finished successfully.

But I just can't open the program: Calling 'starccm+' from the terminal only gives me the 'command not found' error.

Has anybody experienced that before?

regards,
Fynn

Related to this, I had posted a question earlier, but got no answer..just posting again.

Would it be possible to run starccm client on my desktop window machine and run the server on linux cluster for which I have a username n password for login ? I tried in many different ways, but not success so far.

All I want is to have a GUI where I can observe simulation while running and change any parameters as required like under relaxation factors. Running GUI on linux cluster through remote login is quite slow.

Hope someone can help !

Yes, this is possible. You need to ensure you have an SSH server available on your Linux machine that is set up with public-key authentication, and you need to have an SSH client on your Windows machine which is set up with the public key from your Linux machine. Then you will be able to launch remote servers.

Hi,
If you want to launch STARCCM+'s GUI in Linux, open a terminal and go to /opt/CD-adapco/STAR-CCM+11.02.009-R8/star/bin/ and launch ./starccm+
You will get the GUi and from it you can open a new or existing file, where you can also enter your license data.
Of course, you should change the folder shown on the path for your starccm version.
Usually I launch starccm in my linux desktop and access through vcn to it when I am out of the office.

I had the same issue as well. Anyone found a way to fix it?
During OpenFOAM install (shown here: http://openfoamwiki.net/index.php/In...u#Ubuntu_16.04), Step 8 creates a similar alias. Maybe, that is the way to go. I am not sure.

Star is usually named Star-CCM+ with a version number attached to it the containing folder. You should be able to just alias it without an issue. Otherwise, the install manual should have information on how to launch it in linux environment. Usually something along the lines of /opt/CD-Adapco/Star-CCM+ (with version number).

It may need to rebut after install has been done.

And then go to the installed file -> /STAR-CCM+[version]/star/bin/

From terminal, Enter $ starccm+, then the windows will open.

I did it on Ubuntu 18.04.
