Unable to determine the device handle for GPU 0000:00:09.0

Unable to determine the device handle for GPU 0000:00:09.0

I eventually succeed to install a ubuntu machine on k with device pass through

Cuda installed properly. After reboot nvidia driver a bound to the device

But when trying:

nvidia-smi Unable to determine the device handle for GPU 0000:00:09.0

of course, in my case the card is not a X11 device. the boot vga adapter is the QEMU adapter.
But this is also the case when using the card on my local box without pass through.
Here the card is installed as the second card, laso without serving as a graphic device.

Any idea?

What GPU are you passing through?

It is a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti

NVIDIA doesn’t support using GeForce GPUs in a pass-through virtualization mode, and the driver attempts to detect this condition.

So your experience is not surprising to me. It’s expected behavior that it doesn’t work.

that hurts :-(. But I can still use both cards fror Cuda on my local device. What is good :-).

BTW: which cards would be supported for pass thru, may be I buy one of those.

Thanks and Regards

I don’t have a list that I can point you to. Most higher end Quadro and all Tesla adapters should work in a virtualized setting, generally speaking. Before making any purchase commitments, I would recommend you evaluate any GPU for desired behavior.
