SCL Supported OS 

 
For SCL, Synopsys recommends single (not redundant) license servers with the following system hardware & configuration:
  • Recent x86_64 or SPARC processor
  • OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.7, 5.9, 6.2, 6.4 / 64-bit Solaris 10
  • Multiple CPUs or cores
  • 2 GHz CPU speed or better
  • 4 GB of RAM
  • 2 Gbps Ethernet card & switch
  • Adequate soft file descriptors (typically 8192 or higher)
Note:
Other platforms are also supported, but are recommended only for small quantities of licenses. For details on Synopsys recommendations, see the SCL Combined Vendor Daemon Migration Checklist.

Supported SCL Platforms by Operating System & Platform Keyword

For a list of Operating Systems supported under SCL 11.x, see the table below.

IMPORTANT:
  • SCL 11.7 is required to support tools based on Magma knights or EVE eved./
  • SCL 11.6 is required to serve SpringSoft tools based on the sclmgrd and snslmgrd daemons.
  • SCL 11.5 or later is required to serve cvd-format licenses for tools based on the ACAD, magma, riod, or TAVEREN daemons.
  • SCL 11.4 and prior SCL releases are not supported.
The following limitations apply:
  • For SpringSoft products, SCL on the Windows OS is not supported. Use another supported platform.
  • For ARChitect and MetaWare tool versions based on legacy daemons, use only 32-bit versions of SCL for Solaris and Linux platforms.
  • For CoWare, Synfora, and VaST tool versions based on legacy daemons, use only 32-bit versions of SCL for Solaris and Linux platforms.
  • For Synplicity tool versions based on legacy daemons, if you are using a Solaris SPARC platform, use only the 32-bit "sparcOS5" binary.
