Cannot use available floating license

Hello

 

I have setup a license server on a linux machine.  

I have configured the XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE to point to the port@server .

The (windows) license configuration manager is able to connect to and identify the licenses available on the license server: ISE_Embedded_Edition, ChipScopePro_SIOTK, ChipscokePro, ISE, XPS, ISIM.

Also I see SDK, PlanAhead, Analyzer, Implementation, Simulation, Synthesis, Vivado_Design_Edition are TRUSTED STORAGE 

 

I am trying to use the Xilinx ISE floating license.  Under Manage Licenses I see that License type is floating, License Count is 1, and Licenses In Use is 0.  I cannot seem to use the floating license for the ISE.

 

When clicking on the "Borrow/Restore Licenses" tab I see what appears to be the Vivado license listed as available to borrow.  When I select this license and click "Apply" I receive the error "Unknown error was encountered while performing the operation".

 

The lmgrd log file on the linux server reports: 


"DENIED" "Vivado_Design_Edition" ACCTIVATED LICENSE(S) (Licensed number of users already reached)
"DENIED" Implementation" ACTIVATED LICENSE(S) (Licensed number of users already reached)

 

Really, I only want to use ISE, but I would think I would be able to borrow the Vivado license as well.

 

How do I get the license manager to make use of the ISE floating licnese?

Hi @Anonymous

 

Can you share your license file here?

Share the lmgrd log file after trying to access the ISE license.

 

Thanks,

Vinay

Hi @Anonymous and @Anonymous

 

From the log file, it looks like there are NO issues in accesssing ISE license features. See below lines:

 

14:12:00 (xilinxd) OUT: "ISE_Embedded_Edition" hamel@Hamel-LT2
14:12:00 (xilinxd) OUT: "ISE" hamel@Hamel-LT2

Re: Cannot use available floating license

Yet I am unable to use features that are non-web pack.

I am not able to create a project making use of a Virtex 5 FX130T device, for example.

Re: Cannot use available floating license

Hi @Ryan,

Which ISE edition have you installed? (System Edition, Webpack edition or Embedded edition).
Please check the same in the xinstall.log file in .xinstall folder of ISE installation.
If in case it is Webpack edition, then the mentioned device (Virtex 5 FX130T ) is not supported.
(Refer to this link for list of supported devices : http://www.xilinx.com/publications/matrix/Software_matrix.pdf)

Thanks,
Rajesh
