8.1 AccelDSP Synthesis Tool - How do I transfer a license from one computer to another?

Description

How do I transfer a license from one computer to another?

Solution

1. If you have a node-locked license, you need to obtain a new license file generated for the computer you are moving to. 

 

2. If you have a floating license and you want your new computer to be the license server, you will need a new license file generated for that computer. 

 

3. If you have a floating license and your old computer will act as the license server, you do not need a new license. In this case, update or create the environment variable LM_LICENSE_FILE on your new computer to include the license server. For example: 

1709@server_name 

 

The number and name must match the SERVER line for the license file the floating license server is using. For example: 

SERVER server_name 0012345aa000 TCP:1709 

 

4. If you have multiple license files, you can combine all INCREMENT lines into one license file. 

 

 

Please contact Xilinx Technical Suppor if you do need a new license.
