Increasing Number of Iteration per Substep

Recently I came across a problem where the large deflection solution that has Body-to-Body beam connection that wouldn't converge. Ansys bisected at the maximum number of  iterations (26) and then halved the load step again... and again...

The trick was to add a command snippet in the solve section:

...with the following text containing NEQIT to increase the maximum number of iterations per substep :
    neqit, 75

and VOILA! It Solves!
