GPU PCI-Passthrough - Power on failure messages: Module 'DevicePowerOn' power on failed.

 

Hello together

I am trying to enable PCI passthrough for a GPU (Nvidia Quadro K600) on an ESXi 7 host (HP ProLiant DL20 Gen10). Unfortunately the following message always appears:

Power on failure messages: Module 'DevicePowerOn' power on failed.

I have already created a completely new VM. Leather without success. The complete log file is attached. Does anyone have an idea?

Thanks and greetings

Please post vmware.logs in the original format - your uploaded file is unreadable

Hello and thank you for the answer. Unfortunately no .txt files can be uploaded here, for whatever reason.... I have now tried in .zip (inside .txt) format. I hope so its better.

Thanks and best regards

.log files should work fine

unfortunately not:

The file type (.log) is not supported. Valid file types are: jpg, gif, png, pdf, pptx, zip, mp4, xls, csv, xlsx, epub.

 

Now its in the .zip format, hope this is ok.

Wow - that must be new ... makes no sense to me as .log files are the most typical file that we want to upload here ....

Anyway - have a look here:

I have now tried a couple things. The activation of the pass-through seems to work:

I have also made these settings for the VM:

hypervisor.cpuid.v0: FALSE

pciPassthru.use64bitMMIO: TRUE

pciPassthru.64bitMMIOSizeGB: 32

The gpu is displayed at the VM.

And the pci device is just present to this specific VM.

However, still the same error when starting the VM

Any other ideas?

Thank you and greetings
