I have installed the Video Test Pattern Generator Licence:

but when I use TPG in the project, I'm still getting message license not found.

 

Project IP Instances:

Re: Video pattern generator licence not working.

Hello @hmlinaric,

 

I believe this is in relation to Vivado 2017.3 or higher? If so, as you are using floating licensing, the issue is due to this:

 

From this Answer Record: https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/69377.html, you can read that Vivado 2017.3 (and newer versions of Vivado) now uses FlexLM 11.14.1.0, which older floating server machines cannot provide licenses to unless the license utilities version matches or is newer.

Therefore, all of the floating license users must upgrade their license utilities in order for licenses to be picked up in Vivado 2017.3 (and newer).

As such, please obtain these utilities from the downloads page (https://www.xilinx.com/support/download.html -> e.g. “License Management Tools - 2018.2  Utilities”) and provide the .zip file to your floating license admin (please note that there are utilities specifically for Windows OS and also separately – for Linux). Then ask the admin to unzip this anywhere on the server. Then the license admin needs to start the floating license server using the lmgrd from this location where the admin has just unzip these. It will then in turn call the xilinxd vendor daemon (also found from the same location as lmgrd v11.14).  And that is it then, Vivado 2017.3 (and newer versions of Vivado) will then be able to successfully detect and check out the necessary license and your issue will be resolved then.

 

 

BTW, if your floating license server is a Windows OS, then the below is also necessary to indicate to your floating license admin:

You may see an error such as “xilinxd exited with status 53” in the debug.log file after starting the floating license server using lmgrd v11.14. If that is the case, here is what needs to be done to overcome this: See AR# https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/69969.html for the details.

 

If you have any further questions regarding this matter, please let me know.

Kind Regards,

Hi @hmlinaric,

 

Reset output products and generate it again and check. 

 

If it does not work, than provide license file of that IP to evaluate.

Re: Video pattern generator licence not working.

Hello @hmlinaric,

 

Can you please open a command prompt and CD to the location such as e.g.: C:/Xilinx/Vivado/2018.2/bin/unwrapped/win64.o

Then, from here, please run this command: lmutil lmstat –a –c <port_number>@<server_name> (in your case the command would be as followed: lmutil lmstat –a –c 2100@192.168.80.100)

Then please see if lmgrd is UP and xilinxd is UP too and then, see what version of flexlm utilities the server is/was started with? Do you see v11.14 for both lmgrd and xilinxd?

Can you confirm on this please?

Kind Regards,
Anatoli Curran,
