Running APDL in batch mode

Hello ANSYS forums,

I want to run a Workbench thermal / structural simulation without the user interface on a Linux-based HPC system.

Can I use the database (ds.dat) from the Workbench project_files folder and use the process outlined in section 4.4 in the Operations Guide (

I assume I want to enter a command something like the following:

What do productvar, inputname, and outputname mean? Do I put the name of my .dat file as the inputname?

My apologies, as this section of the operations guide is a little over my head. Does anyone know of a resource that would help me to understand how this process works?

Thanks so much!
