license issue when creating PCIe core

Jump to solution

I'm using Vivado 2018.2 to create a PCIe core for Ultrascale Kintex device and received this error.

Failed to get license for feature "sythesis and/or device 'xcku040. Cannot connect to a license server running the xilinxd licensing damon on the specific host.

But my License Manager does show I have a license as shown in the "attachment file"

This was working before with the Kintex and Zynq device but why not the Ultrascale device.

How should I resolve this?

Hi again @tchin123,

Yes, indeed you'd need lmgrd and xilinxd both to be v11.14 (or newer) for the newer versions of Vivado to be able to check out the licenses from the server.

Please obtain these utilities from the downloads page (https://www.xilinx.com/support/download.html) 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 he/she needs to start the floating license server using the lmgrd from this location where he/she has just unzip these. It will then in turn will call the xilinxd vendor daemon (also found from the same location as lmgrd v11.14).  And that is it then, Vivado 2018.x will then be able to successfully detect and check out the necessary license and your issue will be resolved then.

Hope this helps.

Have a nice day and enjoy your weekend.

Hello @tchin123,

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 (for windows 64-bit OS)

Then, from here, please run this command: lmutil lmstat –a –c <port_number>@<server_name> -i (in your case the command would be as followed: lmutil lmstat –a –c 2100@10.0.0.94 -i)

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? Thanks

Kind Regards,
Anatoli Curran,
