I had setup a lincese server for the quarus software,but when i tried to use the questa,it failed with the following errors:

** Fatal: Failed to initialize licensing environment. License environment not set correctly.
Unable to checkout a license. Vsim is closing.
** Error: Invalid license environment. Application closing.

It looks like the license server is not configured correctly,but when i tried the lmutil tool,it seems pretty well:

Hello

 

Welcome to INTEL forum. To narrow down this issue, can you please provide me the latest of the following?

 

1) .log file

2) Machine OS information

3) license.dat file

 

You can also reply/attach your file in private message.

Hello,

 

According to my understanding, the Ubuntu 22.04.6 LTS version is not officially supported for the Questa edition, as stated in the documentation provided at the following link: Link to Intel's OS support page.

 

When an operating system is considered unsupported, it implies that certain functionalities may work, but others may not. It is important to note that no resources will be allocated for debugging or diagnosing issues specific to the unsupported platform.

We strongly recommend using the appropriate operating system that is officially supported for the Questa tool.
