Wrong hostid on SERVER line for license file

Greetings,

 

We've been serving up a floating license for quite some time now and the original administrator has left the company since. No one notices when everything runs smoothly, but unfortunately we've now had the network card go bad and we are scratching our heads as to how to rehost the license with a new hostid.

 

How can we get it to accept the new hostid (new network card) ?

Re: Wrong hostid on SERVER line for license file

Hi,

You need to regenerate your license to target the new host id.
1. Proceed to the Xilinx Product Licensing Site www.xilinx.com/getlicense
2. Click on the “Manage Licenses” tab.
3. Highlight the license file entry for the host you wish to update
4. Click the “Modify License” button
5. Update the host information on the corresponding screen.

If you donot know the account details of your organisation you can contact xilinx customer support by filling the form at http://www.xilinx.com/askx/customer_service_form.htm

Thanks,
Deepika.

Re: Wrong hostid on SERVER line for license file

Hi,

License was generated with the host id: 000acd1896b2. But your currrent hostid is: 6805ca18b7d2

Use this command to get your hostid: lmutil lmhostid

Thanks
