4.5.2. Upgrading the FLEXlm License Manager Server Software
If the lmgrd or alterad daemons are not version 22.214.171.124, you must upgrade both daemons with the versions that the Intel® Quartus® Prime software provides.
You can only have one vendor daemon running at a time on a single system. For example, alterad and mgcld can co-exist, but you cannot have two running daemons of alterad. If you have an Intel FPGA software license and Questa*-Intel® FPGA Edition Software license, and also have other Siemens EDA* Questa* software license. You can either merge all of them into a single file or put all Siemens EDA* Questa* software licenses in a single file. If you do the later, you need to remove the VENDOR mgcld line from the Intel FPGA software license file. You cannot have Siemens EDA* licenses across two files for the same license server.
If a soft reload through the lmutil lmreread command failed, shut down the current license daemons before reloading them again.
To upgrade an older version of the FLEXlm software:
- Make a backup copy of your current lmgrd and alterad daemons.
- Copy the new versions of the files to the license server over your current daemons.
If you installed the FLEXlm software using the Intel® Quartus® Prime installer, the current versions of the lmgrd and alterad daemons are in:
- Restart the FLEXlm license server by typing at a command prompt:
<FLEXlm system directory>\lmutil lmdown -c <license file path>
<FLEXlm system directory>\lmgrd -c <license file path>[-l <optional log path>]
/<FLEXlm system directory>/lmutil lmdown -c <license file path>
/<FLEXlm system directory>/lmgrd -c <license file path> [-l <optional log path>]
