[Common 17-345] A valid license was not found for feature 'synthesis' and/or device 'xcku060'


We are running Vivado 2018.2 using floating license and cannot run synthesis on xcku060. 

The server does not have Vivado installed, only the license utilities . Flex net version is 11.4 as requested. "8:15:17 (lmgrd) FlexNet Licensing (v11.14.1.0 build 194335 i86_n3)"

When opening the Vivado License manager on the Client, it shows the 2 license available, but Vivado says it cannot get one (either synthesis, either targeted device xcku060) (see picture of VLM and Vivado together)

Taking a look at the lmgrd log on the server (extract joined), I have some message saying that the synthesis license was granted, but apparently, there is an issue with the device (UNSUPPORTED: "xcku060" (PORT_AT_HOST_PLUS   ) 

Running from another computer/client, I was able to perform to get license and perform synthesis with xcku060, but the design was so small (only assign my_out = my_in;) that may be Vivado did not car about the licensing. when running from this computer, I had the same logs in eg picking a synthesis license but error with the xcku060. However, the project was synthesized and implemented.

I have the following questions:

- Is the part type (xcku060) validated through the license on the Server or through the Vivado version on the Client ?

- the computer/Client having issues is 'old' and had many demo/free license for different Vivado/ISE version. Can it be an issue (the .lic file have been removed from the search path) ?

- Any idea to fix our problem ? 

Thanks for any help you can provide

Hi @mduprez_mutest,

Provide your Vivado license file (.lic) to evaluate. 

And also run "report_environment -file <filepath>/env.txt" in tcl console and provide env.txt to evaluate. 

Also mention the full device part name which you are targeting.

Hello @mduprez_mutest,

We can see your floating license server is up and running with lmgrd v11.14. However, is the version of xilinxd is also v11.14?

Can you please open a command prompt and CD to the location such as e.g.: C:/Xilinx/Vivado/2018.2/bin/unwrapped/win64.o

Then, from here, please run this command: lmutil lmstat –a –c <port_number>@<server_name> (in your case the command would be as followed: lmutil lmstat –a –c 2100@

Then please see if lmgrd is UP and xilinxd is UP too and then, see what version of flexlm utilities the server is/was started with? Do you see v11.14 for both lmgrd and xilinxd?

Kind Regards,
