    Unable to start Virtuoso Reply

    I have installed IC-615-06.15.151 and MMSIM_11.10.445 but failed to start virtuoso. When I start the license server using “lmgrd_v” alias defined in bash file it says server is up but the desired vendor daemon is down. When I check the status of server using “lmstat_v” alias it says the license server failed to start.

    If I comment out the USE_SERVER line in license file, virtuoso starts but cannot simulate with output log message: waiting for available license for virtuoso spectre.

    While configuring MMSIM after IC615 installation, I used the OA installation of IC615 instead of MMSIM. The .bashrc file looks like this:
    export CDS_HOME=/opt/EDA/cadence/ic615
    export MMSIM_HOME=/opt/EDA/cadence/mmsim111
    export OA_HOME=/opt/EDA/cadence/ic615/oa_v22.41.029
    export CDS_LIC_FILE=5280@localhost
    export CDS_Netlisting_Mode=Analog
    export PATH=$MMSIM_HOME/tools/bin:$CDS_HOME/tools/bin:$CDS_HOME/tools/dfII/bin:$PATH
    export CDS_AUTO_64BIT="spectre:ultrasim:irun"
    alias lmgrd_v='$CDS_HOME/tools/bin/lmgrd -c $CDS_HOME/share/license/license.dat
    alias lmstat_v='$CDS_HOME/tools/bin/lmstat -c $CDS_HOME/share/license/license.dat'
    alias lmdown_v='$CDS_HOME/tools/bin/lmdown -c $CDS_HOME/share/license/license.dat'

    The first few lines of license file looks like this:
    SERVER localhost ANY 5280
    DAEMON cdslmd /opt/EDA/cadence/ic615/tools/bin/cdslmd
    # DO NOT REMOVE THE USE_SERVER LINE
    USE_SERVER
    FEATURE...

    I don't understand where the problem is and how to solve this.
