Valid license not found for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7z020'

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I'm trying to build a project on an Vivado 2015.4 for the Zedboard. I normally use 2018.2 and have no issues with it.

on 2015.4 however I get the above error.

 

I've download the 'HL webpack 2015 and Earlier' license but it does not work.

Is the Zedboard not covered with this license?

Hi again @ashvision-paul,

 

try creating a .Xilinx (note: a '.' before Xilinx) at /home/paul/ location and then put this license into this /home/paul/.Xilinx location. Vivado should then be able to detect this license from this location too, without you needing to specify XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE.

 

Alternatively, you can put this license into the location such as this:

 

/opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2018.2/data/ip/core_licenses/

 

This is a typical location of your free IP Core Node-Locked licenses that came with the Vivado installation. Vivado scans this location when a licensing check is performed. Therefore, putting this Vivado WebPACK license into this same location, this will work fine for you too.

 

Please give this a try and let me know if this works for you or not.

Hi @ashvision-paul,

 

Share the license which you are using for Vivado 2015.4. 

 

Which OS are you using for it?

 

xc7z020 is supported with Vivado 2015.4 webpack.

Hi @hemangd

 

Thanks for the reply.

 

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04.

I believe this project was originally developed on 14.04 so I also tried to build it there to no success.

Hi @ashvision-paul,

 

Is this the full license file which you have downloaded from Xilinx webpage? It does not show packages in the file. (like below.)

 

sss.JPG

 

Make sure you have correctly added license file to License manager. 

 

Provide environment report. For that Run report_environment -file <filepath>/env.txt in tcl console.

 

And stick to the supported Ubuntu OS for Vivado 2015.4 which is Ubuntu Linux 14.04.2 LTS (64-bit)

 

regards.

Hi @hemangd,

 

I attached a picture of the file while downloading it.

I don't see any packages in the file.

Is there another license I need to get?

 

I also attached env.txt.

I don't see the xilinx license variable listed in it.

 

Thanks,

Paul

Hi @ashvision-paul,

 

Your environment file does not show any feature like v_webpack. 

 

Have you set XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE  in license manager to specifically tell Vivado where to look for this license (e.g. C:\.Xilinx)?

Hi @hemangd,

 

I haven't set that variable although I can't set it in the VLM.

I added this line to settings.sh

 

export XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE=/root/.Xilinx/Xilinx.lic

 

Still no joy.

 

Thanks,

Paul

Hi @ashvision-paul,

 

Regenerate this license from xilinx webpage with valid host id and locate it to the xilinxd_license_file

Hello @ashvision-paul,

 

export XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE=/root/.Xilinx

 

Set the above command directly in the terminal (so outside of settings.sh) and then close and re-open your Vivado session and then see if this time Vivado can detect this license or not?

 

Your current license has Host ID =ANY, so will work on any machine, therefore you don't need to re-generate this.

The reason why everything works fine with 2018.2, is because the licensing check has been removed for the WebPACK devices with the newer Vivado tools, however for the older versions of Vivado, you'd still need a valid Vivado WebPACK license, which you do.

 

So, please set your XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE to the folder where you have your Node-Locked Xilinx.lic files stored, then verify that this environment variable is correctly set by running the command such as 'set' and it will then print out the name and value of each shell variable. 

Then open VLM and under "Manage License Search Paths", see if XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE has the /root/.Xilinx value grayed out.

If so, then navigate to View License Status and see if you can now see your v_webpack license listed.

If so, you must to close and re-open Vivado for the new license to get detected.

This should fix your issue then.

 

Hope this helps

Hi @anatoli,

 

Thanks for the reply!

 

So i set the env variable (selection_003) and relaunched vivado.

In the VLM the XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE still has the "1234@server" greyed out.

Tried relaunching a few times, no success.

 

Thanks,

Paul

Hello @ashvision-paul,

 

XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE is what needs to be set, not XILINXD_FILE_LICENSE.

Hello @ashvision-paul,

Have you now managed to resolve the issue by setting XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE to point to the location of your license file?

Can you confirm on this please? Thanks

Sorry for late reply.

Hello @ashvision-paul,

 

Please share your Xinfo report generated on the PC where you see this licensing issue. 

Xinfo.txt can be generated by running the "report_environment –file xinfo.txt" command in Vivado TCL console.

Hi @anatoli,

 

He's the report.

I don't see XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE anywhere in it but I have it set in the terminal before launching Vivado.

Hi @anatoli,

 

Making that home folder fixed it!

Thank you so much for your time.
