8.1i Virtex-II Pro X Map: "MapLib:555 - BREFCLKPIN pin of "mgt_7" is not connected to IPAD"

Description

My Virtex-II Pro X design has multiple GT10 instantiations which share a BREFCLK input. When I run MAP, I receive the following error on all but one instance of my GT10s. 

 

ERROR:MapLib:555 - BREFCLKPIN pin of transmitter symbol "mgt_7" is not connected to an IPAD. 

ERROR:MapLib:555 - BREFCLKNIN pin of transmitter symbol "mgt_7" is not connected to an IPAD. 

 

The same BREFCLK pad drives all the instances, so this error seems incorrect. How do I work around this?

Solution

The problem is related to tracking the net through hierarchy. This will be fixed in a future software release.  

 

To work around it in the current software, either move all your GT10 components to one level of hierarchy or use the -ignore_keep_hierarchy switch in MAP.
