Auto Solver Setting is not suppported by Manual HPC Settings

    • rundblom

      Hello! I apologize in advance if I posted to the wrong area, I am systems adminsitrator and know little about Ansys and I am trying to put this post in the most appropriate place.

      I am trying to help a graduate student with Ansys on a cluster. I do not know if the error they are recieving is an installation error or configuration error or a combination of the two.

      I am trying to keep the student’s identity private by referring to them as the student or

      The problem:

      The student gets the following error when trying to run Ansys on the Illinois Campus Cluster:

      [error] Project:ECE546Project_shortpcb,
      Design:high-speed-link (Terminal Network), Auto Solver Setting is not
      suppported by Manual HPC Settings -- Simulating on machine: ccc0037 (11:04:36
      PM Jun 07, 2022)

      [error] Project:ECE546Project_shortpcb, Design:high-speed-link (Terminal Network), Simulation completed with execution error on server: ccc0037. (11:04:38 PM Jun 07, 2022)

      cp: '/home//scratch/high-speed-link.o5538279' and '/scratch/users//high-speed-link.o5538279' are the same file

      I had a Zoom session with the student, and they are using 2021 R2 student and 2021R2 is installed on the Campus Cluster, and on the desktop software the auto solver setting is unchecked. So that looks OK as far as I can tell.

      The student works with Ansys 2021 R2 student on a graphical workstation, saves the file, then copies the file to campus cluster, and then submits a job to compute against the file, and from what I can tell in the graphical version of the desktop, the auto solver setting is unchecked, so... I am not sure where the Auto Solver Setting and Manual HPC settings are in the Campus Cluster version.

       Thank you in advance,

      Hi Glen,
      At this point, we are going to need more details.

      Are these errors in the cluster std error and out files?
      Can the student copy the following example project and reproduce the issue? 
      --  /path/AnsysEM/AnsysEM21.2/Linux64/schedulers/diagnostics/Projects/HFSS/MPI_tst2.aedt
      Please share screenshots of the submission or the batch submission script.

        Hi Randy, the student just got back to me:

        "Yes, the errors are in cluster std out/err files.
        I tested that file (C:\Program Files\AnsysEM\Ansys Student\v212\Win64\schedulers\diagnostics\Projects\HFSS\MPI_tst2.aedt) just now and it worked fine. Then, it probably means there's something wrong with my file?"


        I will ask for a copy of their slurm submission script, I have not done that yet.

      Hello, I am getting an access denied message when I try to reply with the text of the slurm submit script:slurm submit script so here it is as an attached screenshot image.
