IP Hardware Evaluation license not working on Vivado 2015.4

Jump to solution

I need the IP licenses for the Ethernet AVB Endpoint and Tri-Mode Ethernet MAC IP cores. I downloaded the Hardware Evaluation license for these cores and loaded the license using Vivado License Manager. When I check the license status in VLM, it shows IP Hardware Evaluation license is available for these cores (Screenshot 1). But if I check the license status of theTri-Mode Ethernet MAC from the IP catalog, it shows Design_Liknking license is available (Screenshot 2) and hence I am not able to generate bitstream for these IP cores. I tried the same thing on Vivado 2017.4 and it works fine. However, I need to use Vivado 2015.4 for my project.

Can you please suggest what might be the issue with Vivado 2015.4?

Hi @xilinx_sree,

 

Based on your first screenshot, shows that your Hostid  does not match for your licenses and that's why that Host IDs Match column is saying No. 

 

TO match the host ids you need to rehost your HW evaluation licenses for your IPs which you want to use. And to rehost it follow this AR - https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/36136.html

 

And that's why your VLM is not detecting the HW eval. licenses and shows the default design linking license in license status.

Hi @hemangd,

 

Thanks a lot for your suggestion! I was able to solve the license problem and now I can generate bitstream succesfully. I found that the ethernet port name in my Ubuntu machine was eno1 which was not recognized by Vivado. Therefore, in the Host Information in VLM the NIC ID was “0000000000” which caused the host id mismatch. Changing the ethernet port name in Ubuntu to eth0  solves the problem!
