I am have an Nvidia M6 Grid K1 that I am sharing its GPU on multiple Ubuntu 14.04 VMs running on VMware Horizon view 6.2.
At the VM terminal, the command "lspci" shows me this message:
VGA compatibility controller: VMware SVGA II Adapter
VGA compatibility controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107GL [GRID K140Q vGPU] (rev 01)
I have the VMs configured with Grid K180Q on the vSphere Web client as shown in your Nvidia Grid documentation:
But, still it is showing Grid 140Q for the vGPU. I have tried to change it to 160Q and it is always showing 140Q.
Also, I have tried to install all the Nvidia available driver for Linux with the once personalized for Ubuntu 14.04 from the package repository "ppa:xorg-edgers". But still I always get the same issue, as if I have no Nvidia graphical card installed on the VM when I run "nvidia-detector" command.
I have also noticed that the driver name used on your documentation has the word “grid” at its end. I couldn’t find any driver wth that name. Following the documentation I should find the driver at the zip file “NVIDIA-GRID-vGPU-kepler-vSphere-2015-352.70-354.56.zip”. But I can only get the following files:
I can clearly see the Windows 7, 8 and 10 drivers with the ESXI driver but the Linux Guest OS Driver for Grid I can’t find it.
Finally, there is the licensing part. Are we supposed to have a license the moment we buy the hardware, or we can buy it later?
It would be really helpful if you can point from where I can download that driver or is there any other way to fix the issue. Many thanks.
