    Failing Regression Tests? Reply

    Hello,

     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 license...

       NC_Verilog_Simulator 5.3 - Failed

       Affirma_NC_Simulator 5.3 - Failed

    ncsim: *F,NOLICN: Unable to checkout license for the simulation. (flag - 2) 'lic_error -21'.

    Has anyone ever seen this or any thoughts suggestions into the matter?

    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 feature

    All available licenses for a particular application are in use. You
    might want to verify the timeout value for idle licenses in the options
    file. 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.
