AC701 / FMCOMMS4 Ethernet MAC

When compiling the AC701 design with FMCOMMS2, I get a licensing error regarding the ethernet MAC during BITGEN.


ERROR: [Common 17-69] Command failed: This design contains one or more cells for which bitstream generation is not supported:

i_system_wrapper/system_i/axi_ethernet/inst/eth_mac/inst/tri_mode_ethernet_mac_i/bd_0_eth_mac_0_core (tri_mode_ethernet_mac_v8_3)


I have gone into Xilinx licensing and added a 120 trial license for TriMode Ethernet MAC to my license. I see it coming up in the license manager however I still get the same error even though as best I can tell I have selected the correct IP on the license manager.


Is there a work around? Removing the Ethernet block from the block diagram in Vivado created a whole litany of synthesis errors regarding unconnected signals.
