Summary0002437: setsToZones does not find sets directory for multiregion meshes
DescriptionsetsToZones is a utility to convert all cellSets to cellZones. It works fine for single-region meshes.

For multiregion meshes, despite providing the -region <regionName> tag, it crashes with the following error message:

Cannot find directory "polyMesh/sets" in times 0 down to constant

    From function Foam::word Foam::Time::findInstance(const Foam::fileName&, const Foam::word&, Foam::IOobject::readOption, const Foam::word&) const
    in file db/Time/findInstance.C at line 145.
Steps To Reproduce1. Download
2. Unzip and open in terminal.
3. Source OpenFOAM environment
4. run "./Allrun.pre"
Additional InformationThe reason for this crash is that the directory-to-search argument to the findInstance function is: polyMesh::meshSubDir/"sets"

This returns "polyMesh/sets", which is correct for single-region meshes.

To make this work for multiregion meshes, this argument needs to be changed to: mesh.meshDir()/"sets". It then returns the right directory "regionName/polyMesh/sets"

See attached patch.
TagsNo tags attached.

@Henry: Attached is the package "bugfix_2437_4x.tar.gz", which provides the updated file "applications/utilities/mesh/manipulation/setsToZones/setsToZones.C", which can be applied to OpenFOAM 4.1, 4.x and dev.

@sjoshi: Many thanks for the detailed report and test case!

I don't know which installation instructions you've followed, but in principle you can unpack the attached file at OpenFOAM's main folder and then build the application, for example by running:

  tar -xf ~/Downloads/bugfix_2437_4x.tar.gz
  wmake applications/utilities/mesh/manipulation/setsToZones
bugfix_2437_4x.tar.gz (2,909 bytes)
