NVIDIA GRID K2 for KVM driver

Hello!ereryone,I use the NVIDIA GRID K2,after I install the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-367.124.run driver for linux 64 bit.But I can’t find the “nvidia_vgpu_vfio info” in systemctl.And I can’t find the nvidia-vgpud service.Do I install the wrong driver for K2? I saw many anticles for the K2’s driver has “grid” word.Can you help me?Thank you very much.
The driver link is:http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

That’s just the plain hardware driver, the vGPU software is not included in that. See:

But I can’t find the right hardware driver.Can you give me the link?

Does mean I need in addition to install the vGPU software.And install the NVIDIA driver in every VMs?

I can’t find the NVIDIA Linux version is 390.42 's driver.Can you help me?

I want to use vgpu in KVM hypervisor in Centos7.3 server,Can you tell me more about this?Thank you very much.

I don’t think that works. vGPU for KVM is quite new, so the K2 is not supported in the available packages, afaik:

I am using the RHEL 7.5. In the RHEL 7.5 Virtualization Admin Guide, it indicates that vGPU could be supported by RHEL now. But in the Grid(6.0) software package, there is no vgpu driver for kvm host as well as the nvidia-vgpu-mgr. Only vgpu driver for guest host.

I have exactly the same issue as comment #8, except I’m using Tesla M10 GPU card. Actually I’m looking for Nvidia Tesla M10 vGPU driver for RHEL7 KVM Hypervisor, and I believe the driver is supposed to be “nvidia_vgpu_vfio.ko” or something similar.

The following is the details of my testing with Nvidia Tesla M10 card, GRID 390.42 software package, and RHEL 7.5, and I’m using Dell R730 rack mountable server:

I followed the instructions in section 17.7.2 on page 219 of “Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux-7-Virtualization_Deployment_and_Administration_Guide” in the link below:


But in step 4, I got following screen display/output which is different from the instructions:

[root@RHEL7R730 Documents]# lsmod | grep vgpu

Also I got following in dmesg right after RHEL7 booting up:

Could somebody please help me on this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot.
