Hi @tkganeshbhattk

 

1. Which version of Vivado are you using?

2. Check whether cable drivers are installed properly in Device Manager

3. Reduce the cable speed and see if you still encounter the same issue.

 

Thanks,

Vinay

Can't find any hw_server in linux on Zynq board

I'm wondering if my problem could be related to yours.  I recently bought a zed board - and more recently redownloaded the boot image on the SD card that came with it - but neither image can find hw_server.    From SKD welcome screen, I hit the "Run a Software Application" tutorial - and part way down, that says "Launch hw_server manually on the remote host by executing the hw_server.bat or hw_server.csh file."   but I try a find and see no trace of hw_server.*
