Save animation file in HPC Linux server (cluster)?

      I am running my model in HPC Linux server. As an example, I am using the following commands in batch job to run the model.

      rc CLG.cas

      rd CLG.dat

      /solve/set/time-step 1e-4

      /solve/dual-time-iterate 10000 30

      wd CLG_1.dat

      exit

      yes

      Is there any way to save animation files using HPC? What is its command?

      Since you have the case set up ahead of time set the animation up too. Just be aware of the paths when you save. As a comment, using rc is setting yourself up for problems, /file/rc is more reliable.

      First I have set all animation settings along with storage directory (used HPC direction) and then copied case and data in HPC server and run the model using the above command in .jou file. But animation files (HSF files) were not created in HPC directory.
      Do I have to define animation ( and or image) setting in .jou executive file? If so, how can I define them?
      Thanks

      The animation should run from the saved settings, but I always use the execute commands to export images as it's safer when running batch as you can check the output. You are running the solver graphics when on the cluster aren't you?

      No, I can not run the solver graphics on the cluster. I do not have access to Fluent graphics on cluster (batch job). For this, I am looking for executive commands to define and save animation files.

      There are no graphics or you are submitting in batch mode? If the former what are you expecting to create an animation of?

      I am submitting (the case and initial data) in batch mode and there are no graphics. I am looking for saving animation of volume fraction of solid phase.

      Does the cluster have a graphics card? The animation tools save the image if there's no graphics available it gets difficult.

      Yes, It has graphics card
