Licensing - xilinxd exited with status 255 ()

Description

When starting the server, I receive a "xilinxd exited with status 255 ()" message similar to the log below.

Log:

10:28:03 (lmgrd) Since this is an unknown status, license server
10:28:03 (lmgrd) manager (lmgrd) will attempt to re-start the vendor daemon.

10:28:08 (lmgrd) xilinxd exited with status 255 ()

Solution

This condition can be caused by a firewall blocking the communication between xilinxd and lmgrd.

Disabling the Windows Firewall or allowing communication through the return port will resolved the issue.
