Can LSWRITE/LSSOLVE be used in a static cyclic symmetry analysis in ANSYS 11.0? When I issue LSSOLVE,1,2 I get rigid body motion for load step two as if the boundary conditions have been lost. If I run the two load cases separately, the results are ok.

Yes, the displacement constraints that are created in the first load step for the duplicate sector are not being reapplied in the 2nd load step. Defect 62765 has been resolved by documenting in 12.0 that static cyclic symmetry analysis cannot be done with LSWRITE/LSSOLVE.
