I have a Tesla C2050 in a HP Z620 workstation and I’ve been using it fine in TCC mode for 4+ years with a Geforce 210 as the graphics card. The Tesla is only used for computations and is not used for any graphics-related tasks.
I’ve recently upgraded my Geforce graphics card to Geforce GT730 for two reasons: 1) to free up a PCI x16 slot; 2) upgrade the computer’s graphics performance.
The two Nvidia products co-exist fine as long as the Tesla GPU is NOT in TCC mode. When I put it in TCC mode using nvidia-smi command line utility, the Geforce stops working completely. It ceases to show up on the “nvidia-smi -L” query. However, it still shows up as in working order on the Device Manager. This didn’t happen before and I’m wondering if it’s a driver conflict issue or these two cards are just not compatible.
The drivers are:
Geforce driver version 399.24 (Sep 2018)
Tesla driver version 391.29 (Mar 2018)
Any help is greatly appreciated. TCC mode is not a must-have but it potentially affects my simulation runtimes and I’d like to have it in TCC mode than not.
