Hi there, We have 3 x Tesla P4 cards we are wanting to use on ESXi 6.5 for vSGA use. I installed the first 2 on HP DL380 Gen9 server with Intel CPU’s and installed the NVIDIA-VMware-418.196-1OEM.622.214.171.12498673.x86_64.vib file and everything is working fine with those 2 servers. We are running ESXi V 6.5.0 build 17477841 on all 3 hosts.
The issue I have is with the 3rd host which is HP DL385 with AMD CPU. I’ve tried installing the same driver and it shows up in vCenter. It shows the card, it shows the Active type ‘shared’ and configured type ‘shared’ but shows memory as 0.00mb.
Also if I run nvidia-smi it shows it says no devices were found even though the bios and ESXi show it’s there. So it’s obviously something to do with the drivers not loading etc but I don’t know why.
I’m clearly missing something here.
I’ve also tried updating the driver to the latest version I could download NVIDIA-VMware-460.73.02-1OEM.6126.96.36.19998673.x86_64.vib but it hasn’t changed anything.
I’m losing my mind with this one…any help is very much appreciated.
