I am running a Tesla P40 in passthrough mode on a Windows10 virtual machine running under VMware ESX. I want to use it exclusively on this machine under a single user. I need to use it as the graphics driver on the vm, and get as CUDA, OpenGL and DirectX support as well. Can someone please outline what kind of license I need in order to get the card running in graphics mode in this environment? Do I need a license at all for this?
I have checked out a trial grid license from the Nvidia enterprise website and successfully installed the GRID8.0 driver. Using Nvidia-smi, I can see that that the Driver Model is reported as WDDM, which is what I want, I think. My problem is that the driver doesn’t appear to be running a virtual display at this point, as I am unable to increase the display resolution beyond 1024x768.
