Licensing - xilinxd exited with status 32 (Exited because another server was running)


When trying to start the license server (using lmgrd for example), it fails and prints the below message in the log file:

 (xilinxd) EXITING DUE TO SIGNAL 32 Exit reason 9
 (lmgrd) xilinxd exited with status 32 (Exited because another server was running)
 (lmgrd) MULTIPLE "xilinxd" license server systems running.
 (lmgrd) Using Task Manager, stop xilinxd and run lmreread
 (lmgrd) This error probably results from:
 (lmgrd)   1. Another copy of the license server manager (lmgrd) is running.
 (lmgrd)   2. Another copy of the vendor daemon is running.
 (lmgrd)   3. The locking mechanism(s) were removed by an
 (lmgrd)        outside program.


Only one instance of a given vendor daemon (for example xilinxd) can be run on a server at any given time.
As stated in the error message, check the following to resolve the issue:

1. Check if another lmgrd process is being run.
2. Check if another instance of xilinxd is running.
3. Try running lmgrd with root/administrator privileges.
