We are using ncsim for testing, and occasionally some of our automated tests fail with the following error:
ncsim: 05.30-s006: (c) Copyright
1995-2004 Cadence Design Systems, Inc.
Trying to check out
NC_Verilog_Simulator 5.3 -
Affirma_NC_Simulator 5.3 -
ncsim: *F,NOLICN: Unable to checkout
license for the simulation. (flag - 2) 'lic_error
Not quite sure what this has to do with SKILL - but if you run "lic_error -21" you'll see that it says:ERROR (LM -21): no more licenses are available for this featureAll available licenses for a particular application are in use. Youmight want to verify the timeout value for idle licenses in the optionsfile. To add more licenses, contact your Cadence sales representative.So you've run out of licenses...You could always run ncsim with the -licqueue argument, so that instead of failing when a license isn't available, it queues the license request, and runs when one becomes free.Regards,Andrew.
