Licensing - Does Xilinx licensing support FLEX-ID USB dongles for Linux OS?

Description

Does Xilinx Design Tool licensing support the use of a Flex-ID USB dongle on a Linux OS?

Solution

Xilinx does not provide Linux drivers or officially support USB dongles for licensing on Linux operating systems.

Although not officially supported, some customers have reported that they are able to install and successfully use Linux FlexID-9 dongle drivers for FLEX licensing.

Typically, FLEX licensing works as long as the dongle is recognized on the system.

In a terminal, type "lmutil lmhostid -flexid" to get the dongle FLEX ID and to check if the dongle is recognized.
