Error detecting Nvidia Gforce 1650 on Centos 7 running on Vmware ESXi 6.7

Hi Team,
I’ve a Centos 7 running on Vmware ESXi 6.7 with a Nvidia Geforce 1650. I installed the
CUDA Toolkit 10.0 following this instructions:

I’ve configured the Centos VM with the following parameters:
hypervisor.cpuid.v0 = FALSE
pciPassthru0.msiEnabled = FALSE

I also have one display connected to the nvidia card.

When i try to detect the card: nvidia-smi returns
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

I attached the nvidia-bug-report

Can you please help me on this?


P.S.: I’ve already figure out how to use this card under windows 7 on vmware esxi 6.7 without any issue.
