Ansys Learning Forum Maintenance

NOTICE: We will be performing backend maintenance of our Learning Forum from April 5 to April 12, 2021. The result will be a new infrastructure but with little impact to user experience and design. Currently the forum is accessible in read-only mode as we complete our final migration. Thank you for your patience. For urgent issues please visit HERE.

When open 2021R1 Fluent, It returns a error message like this "ANSYS LICENSE MANAGER ERROR:Failover feature 'CFD Solver - Level 1' is not available.

Request name cfd_solve_level1 does not exist in the licensing pool.

No such feature exists.

Feature:      cfd_solve_level1

License path: [email protected];[email protected];

FlexNet Licensing error:-5,147"

We do not have any problems using Fluent 2019.

Could you advise?

Thank you.

In addition, we also have problems to run Ensight, which we also have licenses for.

    @mashimaro_star You will need to obtain an updated license file from your ANSYS Account Team to run 2021R1, and you'll need to also update the license manager to the latest release. The ASC on your account may access a new license from the Ansys Licensing Portal (

    Thank you. As the PI of the lab, I used to use ANSYS Customer Portal to schedule virtual meeting using request submission. Could you let me know how we can ask technicians to do similar things now? It is not convenient now since ANSYS customer portal turned down all requests.
