Mechanical missing in Workbench

      Hi,

      I installed all the modules available in the installer in FLUIDSTRUCTURES_2021R1_LINX64.tgz

      We have licenses for them, for example Mechanical and System Coupling... but they do not appear in Workbench.

      The license server is active and the licenses we have seem correct. Reading from the forum it seems this might be the first thing to check. Is there a command to check that the licenses for Mechanical and System Coupling are actually working?

      If the licenses are OK, what else might be causing that those modules do not appear in workbench?

      Thanks and best regards,

      Under the /ansys_inc/shared_files/licensing/ directory you should see a file named ansyslmd.ini
      This file will hold the license server name.
      You can run:
      /ansys_inc/shared_files/licensing/linx64/lmutil lmstat -a -c 1055@servername
      (change servername to the hostname of your license server)
      It is most likely a licensing issue. Paste the output from running that command... We can not open files.

      Thansk a lot for the answer. In ansyslmd.ini, the port of ansysli server appears (2325)
      I ran the lmstat command - these are the licenses listed (I split the list in 2 posts, since there seems to be a limit in body size)
      ansyslmd: UP v11.16.5

      Hi Any suggestions on the next steps?
      Thanks and kind regards

      What is the exact contents of the ansyslmd.ini?
      If running 2021 R1 only, It should be :
      SERVER=1055@servername

      If running earlier versions also, it should be:
      SERVER=1055@servername
      ANSYSLI_SERVERS=2325@servername

      Under the user's home directory, there should be a .ansys directory that holds licdebug files
      Do those contain any errors?

      The version installed is only 2021, but the ansyslmd.ini file contains 2325, instead of 1055:
      ANSYSLI_SERVERS=2325@192.168.2.10
      I see the log file ansyscl.servername.42727.20679.log, though there are no errors - just checkpoint info...
      Server has been running for 7 days, 0 hours, 0 minutes, and 0 seconds.
      and ulimit status...

      Change the ansyslmd.ini file to look as follows:
      SERVER=1055@192.168.2.10
      ANSYSLI_SERVERS=2325@192.168.2.10

      Now open workbench, Do the Systems show?
