What I'm confused about is that I'm not generating any results files for specifically transient structural simulations I try to run over HPC. I have managed to run static structural and modal via HPC, so I'm confused why it isn't working for transient. According to the log reported by the clusters, there isn't any issue with the simulation run (i.e., they are 'completed'), yet I'm missing .rst files.
I had a look at the output file and there are a couple of things which seem abnormal:
RUN SETUP PROCEDURE FROM FILE= /local/software/ansys/v21r2/ansys_inc/v212/ansys/apdl/start.ans
/INPUT FILE= /local/software/ansys/v21r2/ansys_inc/v212/ansys/apdl/start.ans LINE= 0
