  2. *** FATAL ERROR # 9174 ***

    Hi everyone, I am trying to run the optistruct solver script on a linux cluster machine, however i keep getting the error below. I have attached the output file as well as copied the contents of the script file i am using to run the optistruct script. I added the path to the Radflex license file as you can see below, yet it's still not working. Please help. Thank you, Mohamed Error message: *** FATAL ERROR # 9174 *** *** Error starting Radflex licensing utility. *** Please check RADFLEX_PATH env variable. *** License checkout could not be initialized. ************************************************************************ Contents of run.sh file i am using to run the script in Linux: #!/bin/bash $ -S /bin/bash $ -V # Where we will make our temporary directory.

  3. Hi, I recently installed Hyperworks in a computer running on Windows 10. However, I need to use gpu processing, wich is only avaliable for Linux platforms. Can I create a virtual machine to run Hyperworks in Linux so I can use the gpu? Am I going to have licensing problems if I do it? Thank you.
  4. Hi there, Have been trying to install the License server for Altair Hyperworks onto a Gentoo Linux based server. However, during the terminal/console based installation (our server does not have a GUI), the error messages come up saying the License manager failed to install, and then that the service failed to start. Am wondering what the solution to this problem could be. I tried to check the XML log file that it talks about at the end of the installer, but I could not see where the problem lies. The altairlmxd script was also not placed in /etc/init.d, and so there is no way to really start the license server/service. We are running Gentoo on all the computers in our computer lab, and also plan to use Hyperworks on a Gentoo computer as well. The server where we are trying to install the license server is running Gentoo as well. Our goal is to have the license server up and running so we can then install Hyperworks... Please advise... Below is the output of the installer from the terminal, when we attempted to install the license server: ========================================================================= ====== Altair License Server 12.2.0 (created with InstallAnywhere) ------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------ Preparing CONSOLE Mode Installation... ========================================================================= ====== Introduction ------------ InstallAnywhere will guide you through the installation of Altair License Server 12.2.0.

  5. Hello, I've installed HyperWorks on our Linux-Cluster (SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 SP3). But I was not able to configure the license of the program. We are using a network-license and thus I set the environment variable to our host address (with export ALTAIR_LICENSE_PATH=...). But as I run HyperGraph I get an error (see the attachment). It seems that HyperWork is still trying to use a local license. Therefore I've also installed the "licensing12.2" on the cluster but I think it needs something else. Can anyone help me to configure the licensing on linux? I thank you in advance. Regards Emad
  6. Hello Everyone, I am trying to run a radioss simulation over two compute nodes of a linux cluster, but was facing error issues in the same. I was using the ./radioss -gui option to open the solver manger and then providing the input for the solver. On single node, I was able to run the same but not on more than one node. Kindly provide your valuable inputs for the same.
  7. AcuFieldview supports client-server operation which allows users to process their data in its original location (i.e. on a compute cluster) while viewing it on their local desktop system. Client-server is supported across platforms (i.e. Windows clients, Linux Servers) and is the fastest and most efficient method of viewing large datasets that reside on remote platforms. Using AcuFieldview in client-server mode requires a few simple set up steps. These steps are outlined in detail in the FV Reference Manual in Chapter 3 under the "Client-Server Mode" subsection. The FV Reference Manual can be accessed on Windows by selecting Help--->Contents-->Reference Manual. On Linux, the manual can be found in the AcuSolve installation directory under the fv/doc subdirectory.
  8. Some programs in the AcuSolve installation require libstdc++.so.5. This library is present on most Linux systems as part of the GNU C compiler collection. However, newer Linux kernels are updating to libstdc++.so.6, which is not compatible with the AcuSolve installation. To resolve this issue, users need to install the libstdc++.so.5 library. This can typically be found using the package manager, or by doing a google search for libstdc++ and the name of your Linux flavor/version. These libraries can be downloaded from the various repositories on the web. For 64 bit SuSe Linux, the package may be obtained from the following link: http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat/4/idpl/7968158/com/compat-libstdc++-5.0.7-121.1.x86_64.rpm.html For Ubuntu and other Debian systems, the following link can be used to search for "libstdc++.so.5" in the "Search the contents of packages" field: http://www.debian.org/distrib/packages A direct link to the debian package download is shown below (contained in the most recent debian version as of the date this is being posted): http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/libstdc++5
  9. Compiling User Defined Functions

    AcuSolve comes with utilities to compile User Defined Functions (UDF) on both Windows and Linux. The following instructions provide instructions on how to use these utilities to compile a UDF. Linux: UDFs are compiled on Linux using the acuMakeLib script. This script uses the gcc compiler by default. If gcc is installed, acuMakeLib will use the gcc command to compile and link the udf. The following example will compile a UDF named usrInflow.c using an optimization level of 3: acuMakeLib -src usrInflow.c -opt O3 Windows: Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012 provides a free compiler that can be used on Windows 7 and newer macines for both 32 bit and 64 bit applications. The compiler can be downloaded from the following link: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/products/visual-studio-express-for-windows-desktop Be sure to select "Visual Studio 2012 Express for Windows Desktop" when downloading. Once the package is downloaded and installed, you will need to configure your environment such that the compiler shows up in your path. This can be accomplished through manipulation of the PATH environment variable, but is more easily accomplished using the following procedure: 1.) Launch the command prompt for the compiler (assuming a 64 bit Windows machine). The proper start menu link is as follows: Start-->All Programs-->Microsoft Visual Studio 2012-->Visual Studio Tools-->VS2012 x64 Cross Tools Command Prompt 2.) Execute the "acusim.bat" file from within the Visual Studio command prompt. This will set up the AcuSolve environment. An easy way to accomplish this is by copying the "Target" of the AcuSovle Cmd Prompt desktop icon and pasting it into the VS command prompt. 3.) The UDF can then be compiled from the Visual Studio command prompt using the acuMakeDll script. Keep in mind that the message passing type you intend to use for the simulation must be compiled into the DLL on Windows. The following example will compile a UDF named usrInflow.c that is suitable for running using the Intel MPI message passing interface: acuMakeDll -src usrInflow.c -mpi impi More infomration on acuMakeDll and acuMakeLib are available in the AcuSolve Programs Reference Manual.
