Vivado 2019.x: License manager in command line interface CLI?

How to access the license manager through command line in linux?

  • vlm asks for DISPLAY variable that doesn't exist since my server doesn't have any graphical interface
  • Literally nothing in ug973

Hi @alexis_jp

How do you connect your host ? Using ssh ?

Also does this host run X window ?

 

BTW, you can make sure the status of license manager via using the following command by CLI.

Would you try it ?

 

$ lmutil lmdiag

Like any server, through SSH. No X window, no wayland (I mentionned there is no DISPLAY var).

I use a node locked license, not a floating one. lmutil and any other lm* aren't installed and aren't valid for node-locked license.

What would you like to view from the license manager? You can still use lmutil for licensing diagnostic.

e.g.

lmutil lmdiag -c <path to node locked license>/Xilinx.lic

Hi @alexis_jp 

 

I'm confused.

If you use node lock license without runing lmutil, you can only make sure the followings.

 

$ echo $LM_LICENSE_FILE

$ cat <your node lock license file>

 

And, as I and @graces already mentioned, you can make sure lmutil lmdiag with/without -c option...

 

Best regards,

lmutil isn't needed and isn't provided with Vivado.

It seems exporting LM_LICENSE_FILE and XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE solved the problem.

When the GUI is used to select the license file, I don't need those variables. Strange.

Thanks
