Hello all - we are continuing with out POC of K2’s with Xenapp 6.5 (2008 R2) on ESXi 6.0.
I can say for sure we have vGPU working, drivers are installed properly. I can run Google Earth and definitely see GPU usage, and see the speed increase on the User Session.
The big problem I’m having right now is Google Earth is about the only application I’m seeing Graphics acceleration in. I can force Google Chrome to use graphical acceleration by going to chrome://flags and forcing hardware acceleration. However that is a per user setting - its not natively picking up the fact there is a GPU. I cannot get Office, IE, or any other app on the Windows Desktop to be accelerated (Explorer isn’t either). This leads me to believe I may have a driver issue as windows is not Natively picking up the fact there is a GPU.
I have GPO’s that “disable” the office and explorer “Use Software Rendering only” settings, but there is no way to force Hardware acceleration actually on via GPO. I have a case open with Citrix - but we observed the same issue when using RDP so they are saying its not a Citrix issue.
