GPU missing in Azure NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation - Ubuntu 18.04

Hello Everyone,

I recently configured an NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation on Azure with Ubuntu 18.04, using the nvidia-quadro-vws-ubuntu-18 image from the Azure Marketplace.

However, when I run the nvidia-smi command, I encounter an issue. The output states: “NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.”

Upon starting the machine, it appears that there is no NVIDIA GPU present, and the NVIDIA software isn’t detecting any GPU either.

Is it possible that I overlooked a step in the setup process?

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Best regards,
