Vivado System Edition Floating license

Hi,

i am not able to open the service request, as the xilinx site says it will be taken for maintenance till 12.00 pm. after this time also i am not able to open the link it trying to connect to siebel service portal but not connecting.

 

We have purchased license with floating option - we are in the process of loading the license in to the server. may i please know what should be the operating system in the server which will be supported. As the Xilinx Design Tools: Installation and Licensing Guide simply says Windows. please help me by specifying which operating systems in windows are supported for the loading of the floating license.

 

Regards,

rajesh khanna

Hello @rajeshkhanna,

 

If you are using Vivado Design Suite 2015.2, here is the list of supported Windows OS on server machine.

 

• Windows 7 and 7 SP1 Professional (64-bit), English/Japanese.
• Windows 8.1 Professional (64-bit), English/Japanese.

 

You can refer respective release notes of Vivado Design Suite which you are using. For 2015.2,

Re: Vivado System Edition Floating license

Hi Ashish,

 

Thanks for your input. I have already gone though it. infact in my PC i am operating on windows 8.1. I wanted to know the OS supported on the server. since the lmtool application to be run on the server where the license will be mapped,from the FluxNet (License Administration Guide) it says the supported OS are Microsoft Windows (64-bit), Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7 (Ultimate), Windows Vista (Ultimate). Since no where in xilinx document it is mentioned i want to get clarified. please go though the Xilinx Design Tools: Installation and Licensing Guide -> Floating License Installation on Servers. Organization's run server OS in the server normally i.e server 2003, server 2008 or server 2012. I think the document you are refering to is for installation of Xilinx Vivado 2015.2 (IDE).

Rajesh khanna

Re: Vivado System Edition Floating license

Hello Rajesh,

 

The operating systems that are mentioned in release notes of Vivado 2015.2 are tested with Xilinx licensing tools. 

I expect licensing tools to work with equivalent server OS as well since there were no much differences between OS.

 

Thanks,

Vinay

Re: Vivado System Edition Floating license

Hi,

 

My question is straight forward will it support windows server OS 2008 or 2012 in the server for running the lmtool (by Flexera Software LLC). Usually they operate server OS in the server not the windows client OS as it is limited to single user domain does not have capabilities to handle the multiple users.

 

Regards,

Rajesh khanna

Re: Vivado System Edition Floating license

You can refer to the following VIVADO licensing release notes for the Windows support:

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2015_1/ug973-vivado-release-notes-install-license.pdf

 

 

The list of operating systems supported for licensing can be found out at:

 

http://www.flexerasoftware.com/producer/products/software-monetization/flexnet-licensing/tab/requirements

 

Note that, Xilinx supports the same version of operating systems for servers that FLEXNET supports.
