Not Enough Boundary Conditions

I am trying to simulate the deformation of the (copper)ring when a tensile stress is applied to the OD of thenon-slotted area. Apply only the normal stresses and norestraints will give me a  message of "Not EnoughBoundary Conditions" when I execute the analysis. I do notwant to (fix) restrain any of the surfaces because it wouldcompromise the  result.

Does anybody know how to apply the appropriate stresses/ boundarycondition to simulate this scenario ?
Thanks in advance !
