Trouble with License Host IDs Match - No

Jump to solution

When I run Verilog codes I get error message, [Common 17-345] A valid license was not found for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7vx485t'. Please run the Vivado License Manager for assistance in determining which features and devices are licensed for your system.

So I checked VLM and found Host IDs Match - No

But this is my correct mac address. How can I fix it?

I'm using laptop + ethernet

Hi @kyh8491 

Thanks fo sharing the requested files.

From the shared files, I see that you don't have license for Synthesis feature, the license file attached only have SDK,ISE,ISIM... features, to target xc7vx485 you need to generate a full license i.e. either System or Design edition, only then you will be able to target this device xc7vx485.

Please follow the below link for license generation: https://www.xilinx.com/getlicense

UG973 lists the webpack supported devices, refer to the below UG and check if it helps, a license is not required to use Webpack devices: https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2020_1/ug973-vivado-release-notes-install-license.pdf#page=9

For your other query, you'd need to raise an Electronic Fulfillment SR with Xilinx Customer Service team (by logging in to https://www.xilinx.com/support.html#serviceportal -> LICENSING), asking them to assign more of the rehost attempts to your profile. They will then be able to add more of these for you. With that, you can then re-host your license for your new hard disk.

 

Thanks and Regards,

Hi @kyh8491 

From the shared snapshot, I see that you don't have a license for the Synthesis feature, hence the license not found error is issued.

Which Vivado version are you using?

I suspect the device you are targetting is not a webpack device and for devices other than webpack a full license i.e. either system edition or design edition is required.

Please refer to the below link to check for the features of the Design and System edition: 

https://www.xilinx.com/products/design-tools/vivado.html#buy

For license rehosting, refer to the below user guide, Rehost: Change Node-Locked or License Server Host ID for a License File:https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2020_1/ug973-vivado-release-notes-install-license.pdf#page=28

If you have a valid license and still issue persist then share the following files to check this issue:

1. license file used(.lic)

2. Run the below command from the Vivado TCL console and share the generated file, run pwd to know the location of it:

report_environment -file xinfo.txt

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks and Regards,

Ansari Hunen

version is 2020.1 and I don't have device yet. But I would like to try out the vivado and then buy a webpack device. Is this possible?

And I tried to rehost license many times, then I get this message : Sorry, you have exceeded the maximum number of allowed license key regeneration operations. Please submit a Service Request from the Xilinx Web Portal for further assistance. 

So, I request a support for that one hours ago

I change Xilinx.lic to Xilinx.lic.txt because .txt is only accepted

I'm student and I just want to use lightly now. As your instruction, I changed the target device and I checked my codes work! Thanks

I have one last question. And what is 'Webpack' means?  What is the difference between Webpack devices and others?

Hi @kyh8491 

Vivado HL WebPACK delivers instant access to some basic Vivado features and functionality at no cost, it is device limited whereas other editions such as Design or system edition will have wider devices available to be used.

Please refer to the following link to check for the available features: https://www.xilinx.com/products/design-tools/vivado/vivado-webpack.html

If this has answered your query then close this thread by accepting it as a solution so that it can help other users too.
