HPE Nvidia Quadro P4000 driver for VMware ESXi 6.5 on HPE DL360G10
We needed higher resolution on a Virtual Machine to boost the security camera system VIDEO rendering & playback on a virtual Server. We are running a small VMware ESXi 6.5 (6 cpu lic ) cluster on HPE DL360 GEN10s HPE Ilo recommended and we purchased qty 1 Hpe - NVIDIA QUADRO P4000 GPU video (Q0V78A), and added to the HPE DL360G10 Currently, the VMware OS sees the new HPE Nvidia Quadro P4000 video Card but Vmware OS is asking for a current driver. I read somewhere along the way we need to purchase the NVIDIA GRID vGPU solution licensing and the login ID To get the correct driver, We were recommended NVIDIA GRID Virtual Applications Perpetual LTU NVIDIA GRID Virtual Applications Production SUMS 3yr 1 Concurrent User Service Unfortunately, I don’t see any compatibility matrix to confirm. Please advise if this is a supported configuration. Thanks in advance !

Hi The P4000 doesn't support vGPU, and therefore doesn't require what you have been "recommended". Be careful taking advice from others who don't understand the technology :-) You can use the P4000 in "Passthrough" and you can then use the standard Quadro driver which is available from here: https://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk Yes, it will definitely work :-) Regards MG

Thanks for the reply. We are running Vsphere ESXI 6.5 soon to upgrade to Vsphere ESXI 6.7 but the Nvidia driver download says it for Vsphere ESXI 5.5 Any feedback if it will still definitely work ? Cheers !

Hi The driver has nothing to do with VMware. You just want the standard Quadro driver as if you're installing it in a local workstation under your desk. Use my link above, use the following details: [b]Product Type: Quadro Product Series: Quadro Series Product: P4000 Operating System: Windows 10 64-bit Windows Driver Type: Standard Download Type: ODE[/b] That's the driver you need :-) Remember to set the GPU to "Passthrough" mode in vSphere so you can allocate it to the VM. The vSphere Host will need a reboot for it to take effect, after which you'll be able to allocate it to your VM and install the driver. Regards MG
