I have set up a simulation on my Windows machine and it has UDFs compiled to solve for the desired physics. The simulation is running fine on the Windows machine, but I am having a hard time running this simulation on my university's Linux-based supercomputer.
Basically, I need help with the procedure (journal file, maybe?) for running a simulation with UDFs in it on a Linux supercomputer. Please help.February 10, 2022 at 11:42 amRobAnsys EmployeeYou'll need to recompile the UDF for the cluster: Linux and Win10 libraries are different. You may also need to convert the Win10 text into Linux as Windows scatters a load of white space characters into the file that Linux doesn't like. We use:
to get around this, it's set on our clusters. Not sure if that's normal as it's worked like that since we were forced onto Windows desktops about 15 years ago.

I am sure what you are suggesting works too. However, I fixed the problem using a different way. Basically, I unchecked the option of compiling via the built-in compiler and the UDF compiled using a Microsoft compiler. Not sure if it was Visual Studio. Running the compiled case and data with UDF and libudf on a Linux supercomputer went fine and I was able to run the simulation.

Sounds like the inbuilt compiler may need checking on LINUX.
