I have a problem with running fluent on a cluster as it includes the file PATH in the file name.
I am running a transient Fluent simulation on an HPC cluster. I upload the .cas.h5 file and am able to run it. In a few test runs everything worked, with auto-save .dat.h5 files were created and saved. I run it on a single node, log in to Fluent on the HPC and give the commands "line wise", as in the command window, not by submitting a full script. Which worked fine.
I copy the .cas.h5 file from a local computer to the cluster. Lets say the path on the local computer is the following: C:usernamedocuments and the case file is named simulation1.cas.h5
I must have changed something within Fluent or my commands as now I have a problem occurring. As in the auto-saved .dat.h5 files on the cluster, suddenly the file PATH is included in the name.
This results in my output to have the following name on the cluster --> C:usernamedocumentssimulation1-00010.dat.h5
This path is included in the file name (which I could get rid of by renaming) BUT ALSO within the results file where it references to the case file and previous time step .dat files. Thus I am not able to look at my results on my local computer.
Does someone know how to get rid of the setting "include file PATH in name"? I would appreciate your help so much!
Thank you so much in advance and I am happy for any idea you might have.
