ESXi 6.7 + Tesla V100 + 430.27 + passthrough not working
I want to passthrough the GPU to one single VM. But the VM does not starts with the Error: Module 'DevicePowerOn' failed.

I configured it like in the nvidia documentation:
https://docs.nvidia.com/grid/5.0/grid-vgpu-user-guide/index.html#using-gpu-pass-through-vmware-vsphere

the vt-d and the passthrough in ESXi host is active:

vt-d is 3, it means it is enabled (https://kb.vmware.com/s/article/1011712)

Hi hsler! I am exactly in the same situation as you (yeah, let's cry together), also with a V100 (16GB) and the same error: "Module 'DevicePowerOn' power on failed" I have a couple of questions: + Did you get any solution for the problem so far? + Are you using a cloud provider or the server is in your premises? (I am starting to think that this could be related to something not properly activated in the BIOS). Best, Pablo

I found the solution, just in case you're still with this: https://communities.vmware.com/thread/619635
