VMware Horizon 7.9 instant clone and Nvidia license

Hi Guys,

VMware Horizon 7.9 instant clone pool, 180 users. We have issues, VM get license but license stay in the license pool because VM doesn’t get shutdown and then we run out of license.
on logout or re-logon Nvidia license doesnt get release, license get release on proper VM shutdown, as suppose.
Is there a way to release nvidia grid license on user logout in instant clone pool?



The license is allocated when the VM powers on. Not when the User logs in. This cannot be changed and is by design.

Adjust your Power settings in the Resource Pool so that the VMs are Powered Off until needed and you’ll get your licenses back (and also improve your GPU performance).

How many Concurrent Users do you have and how many vGPU licenses do you have?
