Friction contact under pulling

Dear fellows,

I have asked some similar query before as well. I am trying to pull one cylinder in contact with another cylinder. I am applying prescribed displacement at top face as shown in figure. But the reaction from second cylinder is lesser as compared with other commercial FEM software.
Is is floating contact case? Are some soft springs required as commercial tool does not allow any rigid body motion or can handle floating body case.
How can I increase normal stiffness of contact so that contact can grip the cylinder against pulling?

Any help is commendable.
