How can same machine be added multiple times in HFSS HPC pool to balance DDM resource?

      According to the HFSS help manual, "Before enabling solver domains, you must have the HPC license option, and you must have allocated at least three distributed machines to the solve pool." (page 2332, v2022R1) . And in the following notes, it says

      "You provide resources for the distributed solve by adding machines to the distributed machine pool. A machine can appear in the pool more than once. You should use this capability to maintain a balanced load."

      I tried to add a machine twice since it has more RAM but HFSS wasn't letting me. Is there anything I am missing here?

      1.. copy the following test project to your local working folder:
      "C:\Program Files\AnsysEM\v221\Win64\schedulers\diagnostics\Projects\HFSS\MPI_tst2.aedt"
      2.. solve it using "Auto" mode.
      3.. review profile for all machines.
      -- This is a matrix array and always distributes. Suspecting DDM project too small and not needing distribution.
