I am running the following lab set up:
2 x HPDL380 G9 hosts each with 1 x K1 GRID card
Horizon 7.0.2 Enterprise
vCenter 6.5 4602587
VMware ESXi 6.5.0 4564106 on each host (Enterprise Plus licenses on both)
I’ve installed the latest 4.1 GRID driver set - including the ESXi VIB (nvidia-smi reporting all ok on both hosts). I have created a K120Q and K160Q VGPU template Win7 x64 VM as per the Horizon 6.1 deployment guide however when I try to select the template I get the following message:
‘NVIDIA GRID VGPU support does not match desktop setting’
I can’t then proceed with the VGPU pool. I can create non-GRID enabled pools and desktops via this Horizon installation. I can connect to the base image used for the template using a View client and can verify that the correct profile shows in the Nvidia Control Panel.
This appears to me as a licensing issue? I’ve checked over the release notes and can see that ESXi 6.5 nor vCenter is not a validated platform for K1 support (runs up to ESXi 6.0u2 and vCenter 6.0) but Horizon 7.0.2 is validated. Is this simply a case of no validation for the later versions of hypervisor?
I’ve seen this question a couple of times, once on this forum but no answers. Has anyone any insight into this error?
