Quartus II 14.1 - Licensing Problem "cannot read data from license server system"

I'm having an issue with License setup using Quartus 14.1 connecting to our licensing server. I am using 14.1 to support an existing design. We have some NIOS licenses on our server.

We are going through an IT migration so new laptop and have re-installed 14.1 onto it, and a new license server has been built.

When I enter the port and license server name I get this message. Quartus License Setup just displays the message " Searching... "

Warning (292000): FLEXlm software error: Cannot read data from license server system.  The license server system appears to be running, but is not responding.  If this persists, notify the System Administrator. (The license server manager (lmgrd) and vendor daemon processes should be terminated and restarted.) Hostname:      EPEUWWPLIC01 License path:  5000@EPEUWWPLIC01; FlexNet Licensing error:-16,287 For further information, refer to the FlexNet Licensing documentation, available at "www.flexerasoftware.com"..

I am fairly certain the port is open, having tested this using Telnet and PowerShell from my laptop.

I'm looking for any advice on why the license server may not be responding or why Quartus can't see the license server ?

Hello

 

Welcome to INTEL forum. To further investigate could you provide

1) full report .log file

2) lmutil lmstat –a –c <port>@<server> in BOTH server and client machine.

3) Client machine OS use

4) screenshot of error message

 

For privacy, you can also reply/attach your file in private message.

Thanks for update. From lmutil lmstst, your alterad vendor daemon is not starting. Could you help re-confirm your license setup again? You need to set your LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variable to point to the license that Intel provide. c:\intel\license.dat or something similar.

 

2nd could you also ensure the port number. The port number is required for Windows systems and it should be outside of the 27000-28000 range and be unique on the machine. For example, 1800.

Please stop and restart the server after assigning port number. You need to allow the firewall access to the port number from both server and client machine. refer this to your license server admin

 

You can refer to link on how to set environment variable.

https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/how-to-set-intel-license-file-environment-variable  

 

You can also refer to the link below on Starting and Stopping the License Server

Refer this following youtube for license setup.

Hope this helps.
