Assign vGpu licenses to users with GPO
Hi, I'm successfully testing a server with a Tesla T4 and Windows 2019 RDS. We want to use the server for two different types of users, being: 1. Revit designers and 2. Office365 users. For obvious reasons, we want to be able to assign vGpu licenses to the first group only and let the standard gpu of the server handle the second group. Is there any documentation on how to work this out? Many thanks, Martin Jansen

Hi You'll need two RDSH Servers to do this, one with a GPU, the other without. There is no way to separate GPU Users from Non-GPU Users on the same Host. Just so you're aware, both of the use cases you've listed are GPU accelerated. Also, the GPU does more than just application acceleration, and it cannot be separated out by controlling which applications users have access to. Regards MG

Thanks for the info MG! I guess we'll just add an extra RDS for the office users then. Perhaps I can also ask a question on license requirements? We are going to use this server for interns that are part of an education program. We want to have about 16 users on the server max. Can we go for perpetual EDU licenses, or are there restrictions on how to use the EDU ones?

Hi Perpetual EDU Licenses are fine, make sure you also purchase SUMs as well though, that way you're entitled to Support and Software upgrades. Regarding your license choice, for the Students using Revit, you may want to look at the QvDWS license depending on what they're doing with the software, as the Quadro driver has a lot of optimisations in it for Professional software that the vApps / vPC driver does not.
