Invalid license key (inconsistent authentication code)

Jump to solution

I have an activation based license that I added to an existing license file. I downloaded the Xilinx.lic file from the website, removed teh extraneous xml stuff, and then added it to the end of my existing license file.

 

However, when I start lmgrd I get the error in the title. Below is an excerpt of the log. Any idea how to fix this?

 

Note, when I run xlicsrvrmgr -v it says "No fulfillment records in trusted storage"

 

15:50:39 (lmgrd) lmgrd tcp-port 2100

Hi,

 

Activation based license should not be combined with certificate based license.

Follow below process to install your activation based license.

 

1. Remove newly added activation license from Xilinx.lic

2. Run the command: lmgrd -c Xilinx.lic -l debug.log

3. Run the command: xlicsrvrmgr -p received_Xilinx.xml

4. Then restart the lmgrd process on the machine.

 

Note: Xilinx.lic is an existing license file and received_Xilinx.xml is new activation based license.

Hi,
Seems to be like the modifications you have done in the license file causing this issue.

Are you using virtual Machine?

yep, you're right. All I had to do was remove the stuff I added to my license file for certificate licenses and then run this

xlicsrvrmgr -p Xilinx.lic.

 

As a final question. I understand you can revert the activation based license back to Xilinx and then reallocate it on a new machine. What happens if the machine crashes or dies? There is no way to initiate a return request in that case.
