Questa license server on linux

Hi 

I try to setup a license server on linux for Questa. 

We have license file, which I modified according the instructions

I was able to get lmgrd running, setup a LM_LICENSE_FILE=1717@dev1 (this is a server name)

After that I run a diagnostics ./lmutil lmstat

-----------------------------------------------------
License file: 1717@dev1.corp.devalore.com
-----------------------------------------------------
"msimviewer" v2022.090, vendor: mgcld, expiry: 30-sep-2022
vendor_string: 6DDBFAD6
License server: dev1.corp.devalore.com
floating license starts: 1-aug-2022, expires: 30-sep-2022

This license can be checked out
-----------------------------------------------------

 

mgls_ok also returns a "good" result, for example:

danyvak@dev1:/local/shared/intelFPGA_pro/questa_fe/linux_x86_64$ ./mgls_ok msimhdlsim
Checking availability of "msimhdlsim".
8:28:19 (mgcld) OUT: "msimhdlsim" danyvak@dev1.corp.devalore.com
License granted through "msimhdlsim".
8:28:19 (mgcld) IN: "msimhdlsim" danyvak@dev1.corp.devalore.com

 

And I get the same message for all features

but when I try to run a ./vsim I get:

danyvak@dev1:/local/shared/intelFPGA_pro/questa_fe/linux_x86_64$ ./vsim
Unable to checkout a license. Make sure your license file environment variable (SALT_LICENSE_SERVER, MGLS_LICENSE_FILE, LM_LICENSE_FILE)
is set correctly and then run 'lmutil lmdiag' to diagnose the problem.
Unable to checkout a license. Vsim is closing.
** Error: Invalid license environment. Application closing.

 

I really don't know how to proceed. The Linux version is Ubuntu 18.04

Hi

Welcome to Intel forum. Per my understanding, Ubuntu 18.04 is not an officially support OS for Questa. An unsupported platform means that some things may work, but others not, and we won't put any resources into debugging or diagnosing. For more details refer the below link,
