Sharing license across host and guest in Virtualbox

Hi,

  I intend to acquire a new (paid)  Vivado license whereby I can run on my Windows 7 host, and also in my guest Linux OS running under Virtualbox.  I want to keep multiple VM images each with its own Vivado installation for different projects, so I probably cannot use activation-based license.  I understand that node-locked license cannot be used for Vivado running in Linux VMs.

  With the above constraints, does that mean I am only left with floating license?  If using floating license, can i run a license server in host machine and the license is accessible by guest Linux OSes? How should I configure Virtualbox guest OS networking?

 

regards,

 

Neo

Hello Neo,

 

As far as you are able to connect VM (i.e., guest OS) to server (i.e., ping from client to server), you can use the VM to access the floating license on the server machine.

 

Thanks,

Vinay

Hi Vinay,

  My license server is running on the same PC as Virtualbox.  My guest OS's networking are configured as NAT.  Will it work?  Do I have to configure Virtualbox's NAT service?

Hello Neo,

As I mentioned earlier, are you able to ping license server from Virtualbox OS?

Thanks,
Vinay
