New ANSYS Software Release 2021.R2 & upcoming ANSYS CFD Courses @ LRZ

New ANSYS Software Release 2021.R2

Since the beginning of this week (13th July 2021) the new release of the ANSYS software, release 2021.R2 has been installed and tested on the LRZ Linux Cluster systems (CM2, CM3), RVS systems and SuperMUC-NG. The new ANSYS Release 2021.R2 has been made the new default version. Earlier releases ranging from 2019.R1 up to 2021.R1 remain available as individually loadable modules. The LRZ documentation for the ANSYS software on the LRZ HPC systems has correspondingly been updated.

For those users, who are upgrading only now from an older ANSYS release (version <= 2020.R2) to the 2021.R2 release, please mind the remarks on the substantially changed 2021.R1 licensing. If older versions of the ANSYS software were formerly installed on your computers, some licensing issues can occur in this transition and during the installation of the new ANSYS release, in particular with ANSYS Mechanical, ANSYS Electronics and ICEM/CFD products. In this case please contact the LRZ Service Desk.

For more information on how to use the ANSYS software products on our LRZ HPC systems, please refer to:

The ANSYS software download page at LRZ has already been updated:
so that you can now proceed with the update of your local software installations on your own computers as well.

If you should encounter any issues with the provided ANSYS software modules on the LRZ HPC systems, than please file a LRZ Service Request.
