    VMware Horizon-NVIDA Grid

    hbhungra Novice

      Hi,

       

      I need assistance to configure NVIDIA GRID on VMware horizon 7.4

       

      I have installed the below driver on VMware Hypervisor i.e. ESXi 6.5.

       

      esxcli software vib install  -v /tmp/NVIDIA-vGPU-kepler-VMware_ESXi_6.5_Host_Driver_367.124-1OEM.650.0.0.4598673.vib

       

      But I'm getting below error when I run the nvidia-smi on esxi host.

       

      NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver.

       

      Regards,
      Hakim. B

          Post the output of below commands:

          esxcli software vib list |grep NVI

          dmesg | grep nvidia

          esxcli hardware pci list -c 0x300 -m 0xff

           

          Disable VM-Pass through option if it is enabled for vDGA.
