VLM 2018.1 can't seem to find my floating licenses

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

I decided to finally update my Vivado install to move from 2016.4 to 2018.1. My existing floating license's version limit is 2018.06 so I believe I should be fine running 2018.1 under it.

 

I installed 2018.1 and now when I open the VLM all I see are some nodelocked licenses that I had on my box (which aren't valid for 2018.1 so they're of no use). The floating licenses don't appear at all. I double-checked the license settings and they're set to the correct IP and port that I was using back in 2016.4. I've attached a couple of screen grabs to show the discrepancy I'm seeing between what VLM 2016.4 shows me and what VLM 2018.1 is reporting (note that both are running at the same time with the same settings...).

 

Can someone please tell me what I'm missing here? Is this a bug or have I misunderstood something and this is the expected behaviour? Thanks!

 

Take care.

 

Jim

Hi jimg@crypto4a.com, 

 

I would suggest you to make sure that you are using Flexlm tools 11.14.1 since these have been changed from Vivado 2017.3.

 

Please check the below thread regarding similar issue
