You're distributing the definition of testArray across
several kernels and then trying to write to the global
value of testArray. That seems potentially problematic
to me. Here's a much simpler example that shows this
kind of thing might be an issue:
(* This works fine. *)
grid = Range[10];
DistributeDefinitions[grid];
ParallelTable[grid[[i]]^2, {i, 1, Length[grid]}]
(* As does this. *)
grid = Range[10];
Table[grid[[i]] = grid[[i]]^2, {i, 1, Length[grid]}]
(* But the following yields an error. *)
grid = Range[10];
DistributeDefinitions[grid];
ParallelTable[grid[[i]] = grid[[i]]^2,
{i, 1, Length[grid]}]
Thus, we can read from the distributed definitions, but
we can't write to them. Writing to a list term by term
is inefficient in Mathematica anyway. You should
probably try to reimplement with Table/ParallelTable
instead.
Good luck,
