Hi，As shown in the following figure，the USB Cable drive is ok，but Vivado reported a mistake，why?

This message normally comes on when the hw_server process is not really running, or is running on a different host or port.
Are you starting the hw_server manually?
When trying to connect, under "open target", are you selecting connect to Local Server or Remote Server and adding the custom host name and port?
Also, if you had the HW Manager opened for too long before connecting, it might automatically kill the hw_server process. Could you try to close Vivado and reopen it?

I select Remote Server or Local Server and the error still occurs, here are my steps:
1.This is my PC;
2. I select Remote server
3. Then as shown the follow figure. Is there something wrong with my operation?

Could you try to open Vivado and on the initial screen, in the TCL console, type the following command:
hw_server -s TCP::3121 -d
You should see a message like this:
hw_server -s TCP::3121 -d WARNING: [Common 17-259] Unknown Tcl command 'hw_server -s TCP::3121 -d' sending command to the OS shell for execution. It is recommended to use 'exec' to send the command to the OS shell. ****** Xilinx hw_server v2018.2 **** Build date : Jun 14 2018-20:42:52 ** Copyright 1986-2018 Xilinx, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

Then, click on "Open HW Manager", and select the options Open Target -> Open New Target -> Connect to Remote Server and enter the URL provided on the message above:
If that doesn't work, please check your computer Firewall. It must be blocking inbound and outbound TCP connections to port 3121.
You can make a test by temporarily deactivating the firewall application, closing Vivado and opening it up and trying again (the firewall is either on Windows itself, or you might have a third-party firewall software installed, such as McAfee, Symantec, AVG, Kaspersky, etc.).
If that works, then you can reactivate your firewall and then go into the configurations and create a rule to allow Vivado to communicate on port 3121.

In the TCL console, type the following command: hw_server -s TCP::3121 -d; vivado show the follow figure:
I don't know what's mean for this. But on other computer, the command can operate normal.

I apologize for taking longer to reply to you.
That warning is normal. it's just Vivado saying that it's sending the command to the OS Shell (which is what should be done, since the hw_server is a process running in the OS).
You can continue normally. Just click on "open HW Manager" and try to connect to the hw_server in the port 3121 (by selecting the option connect to remote server).
