According to latest release notes of 5.3 , if you use vDGA linked-clones desktops and you do a refresh / recompose the VM's should keep there vDGA settings
but this doesn't apply to the recompose operation , refresh however does work and keeps the vDGA GPU settings ??
Got some good tip from a internal vmware pre-sale and the following solution did solve the problem , so basically remove the following lines on the master .vmx / parent and take new snapshot , then when you recompose it will keep the original vDGA GPU settings .. ;) "After you install the driver and detach the GPU device from the master template manually remove the passthru device entry and then take the snapshot For example the entries to be removed are pciPassthru0.id = "133:00.0" pciPassthru0.deviceId = "0x11bf" pciPassthru0.vendorId = "0x10de" pciPassthru0.systemId = "52c7a340-e91a-596d-e293-6c416aa07cc2" pciPassthru0.pciSlotNumber = "-1" Message was edited by: Patrik
sorry to bring up an old topic, but are you still using vDGA with horizon View?
we're on view 7.0.3, and trying to accomplish the same thing - but i dont see pci passthru entries in the .vmx file once i remove the K1 card?
we've successfully removed the K1 card from the parent VM, but when we deploy and add the card to the linked clones, they always start up with a "windows must reboot. now or later?" (windows 7) message, which we have linked to the K1 card being assigned. We're hoping your solution below may help resolve this issue.
thanks in advance!
