cdslmd panic

Hi

I successfully followed the procedure give in the install guide which came with the ICC5.0.33 tools and was able to install cadence 5.0.33 on a linux box running RH7.2 with kernel version 2.4.7-10. The problem I am having is this

When I start cadence the splash screen comes up and the CIW window comes up and icfb just hangs !!!

The panic.log file is created but it is empty

I also set the environment variable

LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.1

and tried it but the same thing happens.

Any pointers would be very helpful

Try RH7.3 > did you start lmgrd correctly ?

Hi

I will try RH7.3. Reg starting lmgrd, I dont run the license server which is run by the department. Other Solaris boxes get their license from the license server and they work fine.

Thanks

How do I check if there is problem with the license manager. I tried pinging the server and it works fine. Is there some tools provided by cadence to check this.

The following steps are what I have done sucessfully after installing ic5033,

1) In your terminal go to your installed directory(my installed directory is /usr/EDA/cadence) and type ln -s tools.lnx86 tools (observe that new link folder has been created in /usr/EDA/cadence called /tools and by now you should have other installed folders such as tools.lnx86 in /usr/EDA/cadence otherwise the installation place wasn't correct)
If this directory does not exit create it and install it in this directory.
#SERVER server ANY 5280
#DAEMON cdslmd …
to
SERVER localhost.localdomain ANY 5280
DAEMON cdslmd /usr/EDA/tools.lnx86/bin/cdslmd
4) Logout to a local user not root
5) Open terminal and type csh
6) Set the environment as following in order not to type them again and again

setenv PATH {$PATH}:/usr/EDA/cadence/tools.lnx86/bin setenv PATH {$PATH}:/usr/EDA/cadence/tools.lnx86/dfII/bin
setenv PATH {$PATH}:/usr/EDA/cadence/tools.lnx86/plot/bin setenv CDSDIR /usr/EDA/cadence setenv CDS_ROOT /usr/EDA/cadence setenv CDS_INST_DIR /usr/EDA/cadence setenv CDS_INSTALL_DIR /usr/EDA/cadence/tools.lnx86/dfII setenv CDS_LIC_FILE 5280@localhost.localdomain setenv CDS_Netlisting_Mode Analog /usr/EDA/cadence/tools.lnx86/bin/lmgrd -c license.dat > /usr/tmp/license.log 7)In order to test if the license is running you can type the following but this is not necessary lmstat -a -c license.dat BRs Joe #### hongwj ##### Newbie level 4 The following steps are what I have done sucessfully after installing ic5033, 1) In your terminal go to your installed directory(my installed directory is /usr/EDA/cadence) and type ln -s tools.lnx86 tools (observe that new link folder has been created in /usr/EDA/cadence called /tools and by now you should have other installed folders such as tools.lnx86 in /usr/EDA/cadence otherwise the installation place wasn't correct) 2) Copy the license.dat to /usr/local/flexlm/licenses If this directory does not exit create it and install it in this directory. 3) Rename the license file to license.dat Change the license header from #SERVER server ANY 5280 #DAEMON cdslmd … to SERVER localhost.localdomain ANY 5280 DAEMON cdslmd /usr/EDA/tools.lnx86/bin/cdslmd Make sure your remove # 4) Logout to a local user not root 5) Open terminal and type csh 6) Set the environment as following in order not to type them again and again setenv PATH {$PATH}:/usr/EDA/cadence/tools.lnx86/bin

Thanks for the advice. Your howto is for someone who is running the license server on the same machine on which they are running cadence. Hence the lmstat and lmgrd commands.

In my case the license server is a separate machine which is running somewhere else to which I have no physical access. I dont even have a login into that machine. All I know is the port number and the fqdn (fully qualified domain name) of the machine.

I know that the license server works because I can successfully use ic5.0.33 from a solaris machine that gets its license from the same license server

Someone on another forum suggested that I check how the linux kernel was compiled i.e if it was compiled for i686 or i386 architecture. It seems ciw doesnt work with i686.

They also report problems with certain dell machines. Could some of you please post your hw specs.

I am trying to install this on a Dell Dimension 4550. Its a P4 1.5GHz with 1GB RAM

Thanks
