A customer would like to use the remote solve from WB, using PPFA on a Unix machine. How can this be done?

First make sure that PPFA is set up and works properly on the Unix machine.

Then, create a code snippet or use the Variable Manager commands.

Do this by going to Tools > Variable Manger.
Right-click on the grid to add the following variables:

Variable Name=solver_commands
Value=/config,nproc,4 (Or set in the Workbench Options panel)

Variable Name=solver_commands
Value=eqslv,dpcg (Set to desired distributed solver)

Variable Name=ansys startup

You should then be able to do the Remote Solve by entering the appropriate Process Settings in Solution (License to Use, Machine Name, User Name, Password, etc...).
