I am deploying a VDI to be used for Petrel 2014. As long as I am using the K260q vGPU, everything seems fine. Now I want to give a full GPU per VM, i.e. Grid K2 per VM. The issue is, anytime I change the GPU the system ends up using the Standard Graphic Card and I have a yellow triangle on the GRID K2 in device manager (after installing the Drivers). All forums on the internet suggest to go to the NVIDIA control panel but since I am using Xenserver 6.2 I cannot go to the control panel as once the passthrough is enable the only way to connect to the machine is via Remote Desktop. Connecting with Citrix Receiver too is not working.
Also For those who have also deployed this infrastructure, I wish to do a pass through because Petrel is too slow in loading the files. Please what do you think I should allocate to the VM? My current specs are:
- Virtual Machines (For Worksations)
OS: Windows 7 Pro x64 SP1
CPU: Intel® Xeon® CPU E5-2680 v2 @ 2.80GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.8GHz
RAM: 48 GB
GPU: NVIDIA GRID K260q
NVIDIA Drivers: 332.83_grid_win8_win7_64bit_english.exe
- Citrix Xenserver Hypervisor
OS: Xenserver 6.2
CPU: 40 Cores (Intel® Xeon® CPU E5-2680 v2 @ 2.80GHz)
RAM: 393181 MB
GPU: GK104GL [GRID K2]
NVIDIA Drivers: NVIDIA-vgx-xenserver-6.2-331.59.01.i386.rpm , NVIDIA-vgx-xenserver-6.2-331.59.i386.rpm
I am opened to all suggestions.
