Artificial Intelligence Computing Leadership from NVIDIA
Designers or RDS sessions do not use the GPU
Hi. We've an Tesla M60 on a HPE DL380 G9 with Vmware Vsphere 7, Vcenter 7 and we've updated our driver to Vgpu 11.1; so that's all about server side. Also we have the latest linux license server (2020.05) and it's working. So we have tested on RDSH (A windows server 2019), we installed apps, assigned gpu profile in vcenter and attached license to RDSH. All seems correct; license server shows that license is delivered and RDSH shows it too; drivers are all up to date and from latest package for vsphere 7 and version 11.1 and are installed on both ESX and RDSH; licenses for programs that are used are obtained; but [b]RDSH SHOWS NO ADVANTAGE VERSUS VMWARE BUILTIN GRAPHIC CARD AND ALL USERS DIDN'T SENSE ANY DIFFERENCE.[/b] So we have tested the second scenario for having many machines instead of one RDSH. We disconnected Vgpu from RDSH and dedicated it to one or two machines and done all above, but [b]NOTHING CHANGED[/b]. We're really out of idea. Note: months ago, we had multiple machines with windows 8 (or 8.1) and they were working fine. Users want us to rollback but downgrades are hard and we have not decided to do this bad job. We really need your help urgently and we're in emergency as our designers are using VMware graphics with very low performance.

Hi Have you configured the "Use hardware default graphics adapter for all Remote Desktop Services sessions" setting in the group policy: [b]Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Session Host > Remote Session Environment[/b] Have you monitored the GPU on the RDSH VM to see if it's being used and what applications are you using? I'm assuming that the Windows VMs you recently tested on were Windows 10, not Windows 8, because vGPU 11.x doesn't support anything older than 10. Regards MG
