IP License ten_gig_eth_mac issue (2014.1)

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

   I have obtained a ten_gig_eth_mac hardware evaluation license installed it and within the license manager I can see it listed and everything seems fine.

 

However when I open the IP manager it always lists that I only have a Design Linking license for this IP block.  Sure enough I can synthesise etc. but cannot create a bitstream as I get an error that I don't have the license.

 

I have tried with Vivado 2014.2 but the MAC license is highlighted in red which I am assumming means it is not active.

 

I have attached an xinfo and license files.

 

Cheers,

    Mark

I checked the license status in 2014.1 at my end. For the ten_gig_eth_mac IP v13.1, the minimum version limit required is 2014.04. Your hw evaluation license has version limit of 2014.02, which can't enable the current version of IP.

For more information on version limit, please refer to Xilinx Answer 33770.

Hi,

 

The Licensing information is embedded in the IP core at the time of generation, the IP core will need to be regenerated if the proper license was not available when the IP core was first generated.

 

Can you try regenerating the IP and check if it helps.

Hi Manusha,

 

    I had tried that and just tried it again but same problem.  When I open the IP from the IP catalog it states in the bottom left corner that the license is a Design Linking one.

 

It appears to be picking the license from 'Vivado/2014.1/data/ip/core_licenses' Xilinx.lic file which comes with the software as that is a Design Linking one.  I tried removing it but then could not do anything with the IP.

 

Cheers,

    Mark

Hi,

 

Can you set XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE to the location of Xilinx_eth.lic?

i.e., setenv XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE /home/<user>/.Xilinx/Xilinx_eth.lic or 

export XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE=/home/<user>/.Xilinx/Xilinx_eth.lic

 

depends on the shell you use..

Thanks,

Vinay

Hi Vinay,

 

   No that didn't change anything the license is still the same.

 

I've attached a screen shot of the license manager window which shows the ten_gig licenses with hardware evaluation but still comes up with design linking in the MAC IP generator window.

 

Cheers,

    Mark

Attached is a snapshot of the IP generator, bottom left is the available license which I think should be Hardware evaluation.

Hi,

 

In Ip catalog, select the "Ten Gigabit Ethernet MAC" and click on Keys (License Status) as shown below:

Take a snapshot of the output and attach it here.

Hi Graces,

 

   Excelent thanks, that solved the problem, I reverted to Vivado 2013.4 and I can now generate bitstreams.

 

Also thank you to the others who replied.

 

Cheers,

    Mark
