I specified a Z-rotation constraint using remote displacement in WB 9.0. In WB, the remote displacement details show reaction values for all 6 DOFs. If I look at the results in Traditional ANSYS, the only reaction at the pilot node is MZ, as expected. Why does WB report these extra reactions for the other DOFs?

This is a known error for WB 9.0 that has been fixed in 10.0. The problem was that at 9.0, the program was getting the reaction using FSUM logic on the attachment geometry of the remote displacement. Now at 10.0 it gets the reaction directly from the pilot node.
