I need some help to understand computemode.
Today we have a test system with Nvidia M60 card, and we have been running it in graphics mode, and added several different profiles to ESXi VM`s and that has been working well.
Now we have a customer wanting to test this system in Compute mode instead, so we have changed it with the switch mode command and that
s seems ok. But what I now dont understand is, should we add profiles to the VM
s or should they use regular VMware VGA card ? They are going to test some applications on CentOS, not quite sure what applications, but it uses Compute mode they said. The reason I am wondering about the profiles, is because I tried to boot one of the VMs after we changed ESXi host to compute mode, and they fail to boot with the error “Could not initialize plugin ‘/usr/lib64/vmware/plugin/libnvidia-vgx.so’ for vGPU”
Please explain what I am missing here, and the concept around compute mode.
Thanks for reply.
