I am using a VC707 board. Previously I worked on another machine using windows 7 64 bit and vivado worked fine back then. But after changing to my current laptop using ubuntu 16.04 64 bit, I installed vivado and imported the license to this machine. However, everytime I try to run vivado synthesis, there's an error like this:
[Common 17-348] Failed to get the license for feature 'Synthesis' and/or device 'xc7vx485t'.
But when I check the license status on license manager, it seems to be okay. Here is the screenshot:
Does anyone have any clue why this happened and how to fix it ?

In addition to Shameer's comment, please follow these steps to obtain host ID of new Ubuntu machine:
1. Open a terminal.
2. Navigate to this location : opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2015.4/bin/unwrapped/lnx64.o
3. Now run this command : lmutil lmhostid
Use one of the host ID returned on the terminal for generating new license.
