Depending on the scale (what percent are Fluent users, how many nodes you have), you could use exclusive mode on either a per-partition or per-job basis.
Here, my (currently few) Fluent users do all their GUI work off the cluster, and just submit batch jobs using the generated case and data files.

This is not an error, but I see that the speed is somehow low.
