Unable to launch omniverse on Isaac SIM

I am trying to run Omniverse by following the instructions mentioned here : Setting Up Isaac Sim — Omniverse Robotics documentation

Upon running the command ./_build/linux-x86_64/release/isaac-sim.sh

I get an error like this.

Hi. That looks like you are using an unsupported GPU or drivers. Please post the output of nvidia-smi.

This is my configuration. It is a Quadro RTX 6000

Thanks. There might be an issue with that version of the drivers. Please try version 455.45: NVIDIA DRIVERS Linux x64 (AMD64/EM64T) Display Driver

I followed your suggestion. It seems Omniverse will not work with both the latest NVIDIA drivers 460 and 455.45. I am still getting the following error.

And this is a snapshot of my GPU drivers:

Sorry, I just noticed you have two RTX 6000. Is it possible to temporarily remove the second RTX 6000? This current version do not support multi GPU.
Please also try these flags:
--/renderer/multiGpu/enabled=false --/renderer/activeGpu=1

It is not possible to remove any GPUs. Do you know of another way to get it running?

Did you mean a command like this :

./_build/linux-x86_64/release/isaac-sim.sh --/renderer/multiGpu/enabled=false --/renderer/activeGpu=1

I know of many people who use two Quadro RTX6000 GPUs in their machine and have been successful in getting all the Isaac related software (Isaac-Sight, Omniverse, etc) working fine. They never had to remove any GPUs.

Yes, Please try that command.
Another thing to try is run it in a windowed container: Setting Up Isaac Sim — Omniverse Robotics documentation
Instead of using the --gpus all flag to run docker use --gpus '"device=0"'

Looking at both the errors again, it seem like it is related to the drivers. Please also try uninstall all drivers and CUDA(if you have it installed) then just reinstall the NVIDIA driver.

I will try this suggestion. I was also trying to find out the root issue meanwhile. It seems like when we do vulkaninfo, we are supposed to see something. But I am only getting an error like this (bottom of the image below) :

Also it seems that the file nvidia_icd.json is not found in this location below:

This suggest that there is some kind of driver issue. I uninstalled my old nvidia drivers using sudo apt remove nvidia-* and then installed the driver you suggested at the beginning of this thread. Do you think I should do anything different? If so can you please suggest the right procedure(which specific drivers, what sequence, etc)?

Yes. It looks like a driver issue. Try remove all vulkan and cuda drivers too. Follow these instructions to install: NVIDIA Accelerated Linux Graphics Driver README and Installation Guide

It is recommended to use the .run installer but it depends on your setup too.
