Question :

Hi, I can connect to my VM just fine using the vmware graphics. When I attach a gpu from my tesla m60 I get a black screen when connecting from chromeos. But connecting from windows 10 or osx works fine. Any ideas?

click on the menu bar on the chrome OS client and see if H264 is enabled or not.

This is normal.  There is a KB article talking about this behavior and is to be expected when you have two video cards assigned to a VM.  You have to RDP to the VM or use the Horizon View Direct Connect piece to login to the VM after adding a vGPU adapter.
