The output file shows the following interesting statements...
EXIT ANSYS WITHOUT SAVING DATABASE
NUMBER OF WARNING MESSAGES ENCOUNTERED= 6
NUMBER OF ERROR MESSAGES ENCOUNTERED= 0
*** WARNING *** CP = 9355.156 TIME= 04:09:18
During this session a solution was performed using 6 CPU cores in
shared-memory parallel (SMP) mode (-np 6). It is strongly recommended
to use distributed memory parallel (DMP) mode instead (-dis -np 6).
DMP mode typically outperforms SMP mode, even when running on a single
system. For more information, see the ANSYS Parallel Processing Guide
in the ANSYS Help system.
You somehow configured Workbench to not save the database at the end of the solution. I don't know how you did that. See if this post applies.
You should also edit the Solve Process Settings and turn on Distributed Ansys and see if that reduces the solution time.
