        Hello,

         

        I've setup a BIOS settings "64-bit PCI resource allocation" and set up to 2GB. This is missed for me I think. I've attached it to here, can you check yours?

         

        However module name=none actually didn't changed, so Xorg doesn't run.photo.JPG

          Hello,

           

          I see in the command esxcli hardware pci list –c 0x300 –m 0xff

           

          that y have the same IRQ for the two VGA and i think this is the problem. The people that attach print screens of this commands have diferent IRQ for the two targets.

           

          It´s possible to change the IRQ for the VGAS.

           

          Thanks a lot for your time.

            Hi,

             

            I'm trying to use vSGA with a modified GTX 480 to Quadro 6000, the nvidia module gets loaded but xorg won't start

             

            I used this guide to softmod the GTX 480 into a Quadro 6000: http://www.davidgis.fr/blog/index.php?2013/09/18/969-xen-430-vga-passthrough-gtx-480-soft-moded-to-quadro-6000

             

            This is my Xorg.log :

              Are you sure that it was modded properly? Did the card work of in Windows?

                Hello all!

                 

                Like others I am here to hopefully read details on how to get my system working with sVGA.  I built a server with the hardware described below and everything seems to be working perfectly with the exception of the VDI graphics.  I have tried quite a few things but feel like this may just be a hardware gap and this is my last resort before pursuing building another box.  I know that this is not supported hardware but am hoping that this is a motherboard configuration issue.

                 

                The issue is that Xorg will not stay running.  Thanks!

                    Though I just bought it so I will test it in my windows box.  Don't think that is the problem though.

                      Hi Linjo, yes i tested the card on Windows, drivers install ok, it detects as Quadro 6000 and works fine.

                            Erwinbre,

                             

                            After a decent amount of trial and testing I found that either the motherboard or AMD processor being incompatible were causing this issue.  Not sure if it is a compatibility issue with the hypervisor or the Nvidia driver.

                             

                            I moved the card into an intel box and have had no issues with utilizing the vSGA with View 5.3.  I hope this helps, sorry for not having better news.

                              Thanks for your reply.

                              We have HP DL385G7 (AMD Opteron 6282 SE) servers. I really hope this is just a driver issue and Nvidia/VMWare will be able to fix this.

                                  Hi,

                                   

                                  Any news about this problem?

                                    Hi mvrk,

                                     

                                    After a lot of testing VMware concluded that NVidia QUADRO cards are not compatible in combination with AMD-processors and Horizon View. They are in the process of adjusting the knowledge base article that incorrectly states that NVidia QUADRO cards are supported.

                                     

                                    They are working with NVidia on new drivers to support these cards in future releases.

                                     

                                    We now bought an AMD FirePro S7000 card instead. It arrived yesterday, I’ll test it later this week. If it works I’ll send you a message.

                                     

                                    Kind regards,

                                     

                                    Erwin.
