New users of ANSYS should get access to the license first by going to this page: https://ansys.epfl.ch/ and following the instructions.
- Install the same version of ANSYS as that at cluster (2020 R2 for now) at your Windows machine.
Login to the cluster (say Fidis) and add the following line to the .bashrc file.
At your Windows machine, launch the RSM Configuration application (only need to do the steps 3-5 once), for example, select
Define RSM Configurations.
- Click + to create a new RSM configuration for the cluster and give the configuration a name (e.g., the name of the cluster)
- Specify information on HPC Resource, File management, and Queues as shown below
- In the field HPC type, select SLURM from the drop-down menu (directly integrated for ANSYS 2020 R2 and later)
- In the field labeled SLURM job submission arguments (optional), enter (for example to request wall time of 1h and mem-per-node of 120GB): --time=1:00:00 --mem=120G
- Select Use SSH communication to the submit host and enter your username at cluster.
Submit host depends on the machine you use. The values for maximum time will need to be changed once you begin submitting actual jobs.
To test the new configuration, click on Submit.
- Quit the RSM Configuration application.
Launch the ANSYS Workbench, for example, select
- Create/Open your workbench project file (.wbpj).
