The K2 is dead..... succesor was M40/60 or so.
Is this a standard vGPU setup? Than its always the same.... for sure you have to install the nvidia VIB.
First check hardware configuration, status of Graphics. It must be shown there if physically setup is true
Download the related driver (.vib) and copy it inside your datastore
execute /etc/init.d/xorg stop in shell access. After put the host in Maintenance Mode, install associated driver by running:
esxcli software vib install -d /vmfs/volumes/_datastore_name/_path_of_VIB_bundle_file. (It may require restart the host)
With shell access, execute nvidia-smi . Command will show you information about NVIDIA graphic device If your driver is correct.https://docs.nvidia.com/grid/latest/grid-vgpu-release-notes-vmware-vsphere/index.html#bug-200524348-nvidia-smi-shows-incorrect-ecc-state-vgpu
At last do /etc/init.d/xorg start .Please mark my comment as the Correct Answer if this solution resolved your problem
Also require NVIDIA Grid subscription license to activate your vGPU for solutions like VDI (Horizon View)Please mark my comment as the Correct Answer if this solution resolved your problem
