Hi win,

Thanks for the response. Understood.

Are the following steps inline with a general batch solve, regardless of the details of the scheduler?

1- create the problem in MAPDL and save the corresponding .log and .db file. (let's say jobfile.log and jobfile.db)

2-copy the .log and .db files to the cluster.

3-set the correct settings for the number of cores and memory and etc. and load the needed ANSYS module (let's say ansys193)

4- this command solves the problem with let's say 32 cores (again, assuming the scheduler is comaptaible):

   ansys193 -np32 -i jobfile.log -o jobfile.out 

5-when the solution is done, copy the .rst file to local machine and postprocess.

Am I missing any necessary step?
