NVIDIA vGPU (Tesla M10) vmotion causes graphical issues (stripes)

When we vmotion a Windows 10 VM in one of our desktop pools there is a 4 seconds freeze/stall in the vm (which i expect) but also graphical issues like stripes and typical higlights. Is this a bug? After refreshing pages or restarting software the graphical glitches dissappear. But this is not good for the user-experience.

example:

Hypervisor: VMware ESXi, 6.7.0, 11675023

GPU:  NVIDIA Grid Tesla M10

It happens even to a desktop background. Also the icon which you see when you lock your desktop was "scrambled"

What NVIDIA Driver Version is installed in your environment.

vMotion Support came with NVIDIA Software Family 7.0 - which is a Driver Version >V410.

What's New :: NVIDIA Virtual GPU Software Documentation

Maybe you need to upgrade your ESXi vib and Windows Driver to a new Version.

Best regards

Hi offereins,

we had the same issues in our environment and after upgrading the nvidia driver to 7.1 (410.91-OEM.670.0.0.8169922) the problem is solved.

Kind regards,

Markus
