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 (v126.96.36.199 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

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.

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 email@example.com)
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?

After observing that some of our project where OK to get a licence, we restarted the same project from scratch, calling for all the source files and libraries. The new 'projet' is able to get a license, synthesis, P&R. The project now works on the same PC that was failing to get a license.
I have no idea what was going on, but I will close the case as we can work.
Many thanks for your help.
