batch running fluent sessions sequentially in W2K environment
User wanted to run two fluent sessions one after the other. The .bat file containing the fluent command caused simultaneous running of the processes whereas client wanted to run sequentially as he has license to run only one at a time. A .bat file with a wait setting was sent that works exactly the way user wanted.
The .bat file looks like the following:
fluent 2d -t2 -i 1.jou
fluent 2d -t2 -i 2.jou
1.jou will be executed using dual processors. Once it exits, the 2.jou will be executed.
This is a neat feature for W2K users who have limited licenses and want to run batch jobs overnight or during weekends.
