Free space needed to install vib?

Hopefully this is a quick question and answer. We’ve purchased 2 Dell R730s with K2 cards and I’m trying to get the vib installed. The Dell servers are running ESXi 6 off of an 8GB SD card. When I try to install the vib I get an error that there’s no space left on the device. How much free space will I need to install this vib? Do I need to upgrade to 16GB SD cards?

Hi JM,

I think you’d be best asking VMware via a support call to them as this is dependent on how ESXi handles vibs and there maybe memory requirements they have that they are better placed to detail. You could also ask on the VMware NVIDIA community forum on the VMware site as this is really a VMware question.

Best wishes,
