Licensing - Expired server activation licenses does not appears in VLM


I am running a server with two activation server licenses in the Trusted Storage.  

One of the licenses is expired (as of Dec 31, 2013).

Viewing server trusted storage.

U if untrusted
. D if disabled
. . fulfillmentType
. . . Expiry Count FulfillmentId ProductId

. . 6 31-dec-2013 9 FID_20130905094814 PID_20130905094814
. . 6 permanent 1 FID_20140213043312 PID_20140213043312

When I run the server, only the license that is not expired is being spooled from the server (see the following text):

17:57:59 (lmgrd) License file(s): myserv.lic
17:57:59 (lmgrd) lmgrd tcp-port 27003
17:57:59 (lmgrd) Starting vendor daemons ...

17:57:59 (xilinxd) FlexNet Licensing version v11.11.0.0 build 106800 x64_lsb
17:58:00 (xilinxd) Server started on myserv for:

17:58:00 (xilinxd) Implementation Simulation Synthesis

17:58:00 (xilinxd) EXTERNAL FILTERS are OFF
17:58:00 (lmgrd) xilinxd using TCP-port 34612
17:59:58 (xilinxd) TCP_NODELAY NOT enabled

When running VLM, only the license which appears in the previous lines is there (see below):


Vivado License Manager cannot display information about the expired activation based license because it does not receive the information from the Flexera utilities.

This issue was reported to Flexera.

As stated in the description, a user can use the command line activation utilities to get this information.

xisrvrmgr -v "format=long"
xlicclientmgr -v "format=long"
