    VMs with vGPU not powering on after upgrade to ESXi 6.5u1

    jseide86 Novice



      I just upgraded my 6.5d hosts to 6.5 update 1 (5969303) and the NVIDIA GRID Host Driver 384.73 (4598673) on my Cisco UCS C240-M4L servers with Nvidia Tesla M10 cards. My vms, which use the "M10-1B" profile, refuses to start.


      I'm getting the symptoms described in this KB: “Could not initialize plugin '/usr/lib64/vmware/plugin/libnvidia-vgx.so' for vGPU "profile_name"” error when powering on… but the resolution does nothing for me. The "nvidia-smi" command shows normal operating status, and the host seems correctly configured (Shared Direct mode for the GPUs).


      Any tips? I've ended up empty handed after googling this issue.
