How can I find the FLEX HostID that should be used to lock or associate a license with a specific computer or USB Dongle?

Solution

You can obtain the FLEX HostID through any of the following means:

  • Open the Vivado License Manager (VLM)
    • Click on the "System Information" screen under the "System Settings" section of VLM.
      This screen will list any valid host IDs found including Network Interface Card ID (or Ethernet MAC address), C: driver serial number, and FLEXID dongle ID.
