I have a simulation which includes joints, pretension, and various contacts. The simulation runs with 2 load steps, where the first step is program controlled, and the second step has initial substep of 20, max substep of 20, and a minimum substep of 5. The issue is, that the first load step, and the first 2 substeps of the second load step solves, but then my simulation stopped. Reading the solver output the error is:May 17, 2022 at 10:26 ampeteroznewmanSubscriberLook in the Solution Output for a warning such as this:
*** WARNING ***
Pivoting has been activated for the Distributed Sparse Matrix Solver.
The memory required may greatly exceed the predicted amount.In that
event, use the DSPOPTION command to change the memory mode and/or
memory size used by the Distributed Sparse Matrix Solver.
When the solver needs to do the numerical method called pivoting, it needs more memory. It can do step 1 without needing pivoting, then finds it needs to use that in step 2.

I do not see that error in the log file, or solver output. However, I remember to have seen messages for partial pivoting during similar simulations on another iteration of the problem.

Does this error pops up for both distributed VS undistibuted solves?
