Vivado - vcse_server - ERROR:Unexpected script error: ERROR: [Common 17-39] 'connect_hw_server' failed due to earlier errors

Description

When I attempt to connect to a remote board from Vivado tools using vcse_server and cse_server on the remote host, I see errors similar to these:

ERROR: [Labtools 27-147] vcse_server: Server is currently used by client: 172.23.64.78:33860
Cannot open new session
ERROR:Unexpected script error: ERROR: [Common 17-39] 'connect_hw_server' failed due to earlier errors.

INFO: [Common 17-206] Exiting Vivado at Mon Jun 3 11
:25:07 2013...

What causes these errors?

Solution

You must ensure that the vcse_server and cse_server versions match. 

vcse_server cse_server
2013.2 14.6
2013.1 14.5
2012.4 14.4
2012.3 14.3
2012.2 14.2
2012.1 14.1
 
If the vcse_server and cse_server versions do not match, connection failures can be seen.
