The image you sent suggests you are using a command object in Mechanical. It might help to solve without using the distributed solver (use instead shared memory parallel processing). Also, include a command object set to be executed during the first step with this command: /config,noeldb,0 and also make sure you save "contact miscellaneous" results to the results file (this is set in Analysis Settings Details). Using /config,noeldb,0, it should not be necessary to use the SET command each time you enter /POST1.
