Nvidia Quadro <3 vSphere 5.1?

Jump to solution

I assume that many of you with exictement have read through all news in vSphere 5.1

What cought my eye in View point of view was this:

"

Improved 3D Graphics Support – (View Only) –  hardware acceleration with possiblity to leverage NVIDIA’s hardware  cards installed in ESXi server, where those graphics cards are  virtualized and used in View Desktops. It’s targeted for graphics  intensive workloads, CAD designers, medical imaging etc…

NVIDIA Quadro 4000/5000/6000 and NVIDIA Tesla M2070Q are supported graphics cards.  Note that the ESXi Image profile must be installed with the NVIDIA GPU VIB file."

It certainly raises some questions for me:

a) The Nvidia GPU VIB-files is that free of charge or is it licensed from Nvidia or Vmware?

b) Have anyone tested 5.1 with Quadro-cards (and VMware Techie out there?) Pros? Cons?

c) Is the GPU fully accessible from the View guest or is there some kind of abstraction layer in between? After some research it seems like the abstraction layer is utilizing Xorg in a clever way.

Hello,

I've setup a BIOS settings "64-bit PCI resource allocation" and set up to 2GB. This is missed for me I think. I've attached it to here, can you check yours?

However module name=none actually didn't changed, so Xorg doesn't run.photo.JPG

Hello,

I see in the command esxcli hardware pci list –c 0x300 –m 0xff

that y have the same IRQ for the two VGA and i think this is the problem. The people that attach print screens of this commands have diferent IRQ for the two targets.

It´s possible to change the IRQ for the VGAS.

Thanks a lot for your time.

Hi,

I'm trying to use vSGA with a modified GTX 480 to Quadro 6000, the nvidia module gets loaded but xorg won't start Smiley Sad

I used this guide to softmod the GTX 480 into a Quadro 6000: http://www.davidgis.fr/blog/index.php?2013/09/18/969-xen-430-vga-passthrough-gtx-480-soft-moded-to-q...

Hello all!

Like others I am here to hopefully read details on how to get my system working with sVGA.  I built a server with the hardware described below and everything seems to be working perfectly with the exception of the VDI graphics.  I have tried quite a few things but feel like this may just be a hardware gap and this is my last resort before pursuing building another box.  I know that this is not supported hardware but am hoping that this is a motherboard configuration issue.

The issue is that Xorg will not stay running.  Thanks!

Hardware:

MB - ASUS KCMA-D8

RAM - 6/8 slots filled, 16GB 1066 Mhz sticks

CPU - 2x AMD Opteron 4334

GPU - Nvidia Quadro 4000

I have loaded the latest VIB file successfully and below are the common log/command outputs that are requested to be viewed with relevant detailed sections.

Erwinbre,

After a decent amount of trial and testing I found that either the motherboard or AMD processor being incompatible were causing this issue.  Not sure if it is a compatibility issue with the hypervisor or the Nvidia driver.

I moved the card into an intel box and have had no issues with utilizing the vSGA with View 5.3.  I hope this helps, sorry for not having better news.

Thanks for your reply.

We have HP DL385G7 (AMD Opteron 6282 SE) servers. I really hope this is just a driver issue and Nvidia/VMWare will be able to fix this.

Hi mvrk,

After a lot of testing VMware concluded that NVidia QUADRO cards are not compatible in combination with AMD-processors and Horizon View. They are in the process of adjusting the knowledge base article that incorrectly states that NVidia QUADRO cards are supported.

They are working with NVidia on new drivers to support these cards in future releases.

We now bought an AMD FirePro S7000 card instead. It arrived yesterday, I’ll test it later this week. If it works I’ll send you a message.

Kind regards,

Erwin.

Anyone knows if there is any news about this issues with QUADRO cards and AMD CPUs?

I've tried the new NVIDIA Driver 340.32, but with this new one doesn't even detect my QUADRO Card.

Not correct, maybe they where confused with vSGA, vDGA and vGPU.

Passthrough = vDGA, see the HCL here: VMware Compatibility Guide: vdga
