Default Mechanical fails, MAPDL doesn't..FSI

KeganLeckness is on a distinguished road
I'm encountering some problems with Mechanical. When I run analyses in MAPDL and Mechanical with the same mesh, BC's, material properties, and analysis settings (Large Deformation, time step size, etc.) Mechanical fails to complete due to excessive mesh deformation. MAPDL completes the run without reporting such an error. I'm using Fluent during two-way FSI simulations. I would like to couple MAPDL with Fluent (instead of Mechanical), but cannot find any way to do so.

Is there a prodecure by which I can run MAPDL/Fluent analyses within Workbench? Otherwise, is there a way to make Mechanical and MAPDL spit out their settings so I can determine what is going on, and why only one of the programs is running successfully?
