LSF and Vivado on node-lock licenses

Jump to solution

Hi, 

 

We have previously set up a few machines to run Vivado with node-lock licenses (also locked to different devices), and we would like to take advantage of the LSF infrastructure we currently have to accelerate Vivado as well -- what is the best way to do this? 

 

I assume floating licenses is more suitable for this than node-lock licenses, but is it possible to convert the node-lock licenses to a floating license instead? Is there a user guide or any document describing the procedure? 

 

Thanks

Jian

You can refer page 169 of following document on setting up runs in LSF:

https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2018_2/ug904-vivado-implementation.pdf

 

No, once purchased, Vivado node-locked licenses cannot be converted to floating licenses.

Thanks,
Nupur

Thanks @nupurs for your reply… I had looked at the guide before, although it wasn't clear to me regarding what kind of license is required.

Thanks anyway, I think my question has been addressed.

Cheers
