Intel FPGA SDK for OpenCL still looking for license files.

When running Quartus through the OpenCL design flow, it works fine when $LM_LICENSE_FILE is unset. I think this is the expected behavior, as it says

  • "The Intel® Quartus® Prime Software does not require a license purchase when used as part of the Intel® FPGA SDK for OpenCL™ 

here

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/software/programmable/sdk-for-opencl/overview.html

 

However, when $LM_LICENSE_FILE points to a license server where older licenses are present or an older version of the license daemon is running, the flow fails, in our case with

 

Error (119013): Current license file does not support the 1SG280LN2F43E2VG device. Go to the Self-Service Licensing Center on the Intel FPGA website to manage your licenses (https://mysupport.altera.com/AlteraLicensing/license/index.html). 

 

I'm not sure if it will actually block a valid license when it finds it, but I think the behavior is unfortunate for a tool that is supposed to run without license.

May I know the version of the software and license daemon you are using?

 

Thanks.

$ aoc -version

Intel(R) FPGA SDK for OpenCL(TM), 64-Bit Offline Compiler

Version 19.1.0 Build 240 Pro Edition

Copyright (C) 2019 Intel Corporation

 

We recently updated to this license server and daemon, but the problem persists:

$ ./lmutil lmstat -a -c $LM_LICENSE_FILE | grep -E 'INTEL|MASTER'

license server UP (MASTER) v11.16.2

   INTEL: UP v11.16.2

 

Before the license setup was:

$ ./lmutil lmstat -a -c $LM_LICENSE_FILE | grep -E 'INTEL|MASTER'

 license server UP (MASTER) v11.15.1

INTEL: UP v11.15.0
