Horizon 2312 + L4 + vGPU + VMWare 8u2 not working

Current environment

• VMWare ESXI 8.0.2, 23305546
• Cluster (3 x brand new Dell PowerEdge R650 with NVIDIA L4 GPU) Dual Xeon Gold, 256GB RAM etc.
• vSAN ESA Full flash
• Horizon Connection Server 2312

Our 3 servers have installed;

• NVD_bootbank_NVD-VMware_ESXi_8.0.0_Driver_550.54.16-1OEM.800.1.0.20613240.vib
• NVD_bootbank_nvdgpumgmtdaemon_550.54.16-1OEM.700.1.0.15843807.vib

Problem description;

  • nvdGpuMgmtDaemon is running correctly.
  • When we execute nvidia-smi directly on the server we receive (NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.)
  • Through the vCenter, if we go to server \ configure \ Graphics we see the NVIDIA L4 Active type: Direct , Configured Type: Shared Direct but the memory show 0 B probably because nvidia-smi can’t retrieve GPU informations.
  • We can correctly see the “VMs associated with the graphics device “NVIDIA L4” but once in Windows 11. No use of the vGPU. Nothing.

Someone has face this kind of issue and have a solution ? Thank you !
