Unable to launch license manager as a service

My customer is able to start the license server interactively, but this requires a user to stay logged onto the server for the licenses to be available. He wants to launch as a service, but it errors as shown below.

Any suggestions?

Hello

 

Welcome to INTEL forum. Could you help check connection to server? But before setting up your license, would you kindly help check whether your machine is supported or not (OS) by referring to ling below:

https://www.altera.com/support/support-resources/download/os-support.html      

 

Make sure the port used by license server or vendor daemon is not blocked. The port number is required for Windows systems and should be outside of the 27000-28000 range and be unique on the machine. The following example shows how to specify port numbers in a floating license file. example, specify ports 1800, 1801, and 1802.

 

SERVER myServer 0123456789ab 1800

VENDOR alterad ./alterad port=1801

VENDOR mgcld ./mgcld port=1802

 

My suggestion would be:

 

1)     After VPN connection is established, setup license path in Quartus II>>tools>>license setup.

2)     Verify license server is running by using “lmutil lmstat –a –c <port>@<server> in BOTH server and client machine.

3)      Ping license server via VPN or telnet <host>< port> to check the TCP connection is established

 

Please stop and restart the server. You need to allow the firewall access to the port number from both server and client machine.

 

You can also refer to link below for more detailed instructions for Setting up a floating network license server (page 37 of 59):

https://www.altera.com/content/dam/altera-www/global/en_US/pdfs/literature/manual/quartus_install.pd...       

 

You can also refer this following YouTube for license setup. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ob9ei5lMgG    

 

You can also refer to this following YouTube on Setting up and debugging Quartus floating licenses.

Let me know if this information is helpful.

Hello,

Here are the results from the server, he is unable to get them from the client since lmtools is not installed.

Please note the license is working as expected when launched from the command line, the problem is when running as a service.

 

C:\Intel>lmutil.exe lmstat -a -c 28001@xxxx-xxxx16

Hi

 

To narrow down this issue. Can you provide your

1) Debug.log file

3) Error message screen shot

5) Machine OS information

6) Quartus version used

7) License.dat file

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