2015.2 Licensing - SRIO Entitlement is incorrect and will not allow bitstream generation


When implementing a design containing an SRIO IP core, I receive the following error:

ERROR: [Common 17-69] Command failed: This design contains one or more cells for which bitstream generation is not permitted: srio_phy, srio_buf, srio_log.

I have a purchased SRIO license with a valid Version Limit.

Why can I not generate a bitstream in Vivado 2015.2?

I have no issues in Vivado 2015.1 or 2014.4.


In Vivado 2015.2 the licensing scheme has changed for the SRIO core.

As of July 31, 2015, all customer accounts within warranty for entitlements for SRIO-PHY and SRIO-LOG licenses (purchased After May 2014 and before June of 2015, when Vivado 2015.2 was released) have been updated with all SRIO entitlements.

If you have an in warranty entitlement for an SRIO-PHY or SRIO-LOG license and your account has not been credited with a new SRIO entitlement, pleas contact Xilinx Customer Services.

Customers will need to generate the new license from the new entitlement and install it on their machine.

Please remember to regenerate Output Products for the SRIO core if you already have one in your design.

This will update the netlist with current license information.
