asked on

Nvidia Quadro K5000 on ESX 6.0

HI,

i have a DL580 G7 running ESX 6!

i have added a Nvidia Quadro K5000 card on the host.

Host boots fine and ESX works like a charm.

Now i need to install the 3D card on the host so that i can use 3D support in RDP sessions for my client.

when i search the internet i see that the drivers for Nvidia for ESX6 are GRID drivers.

this is not the same? what drivers do i need to get the K5000 working on ESX 6

For 3D support in RDP sessions you need Windows 8 or Server 2012
Also you need to set DGA - PCI passthrough and install the driver in guest, the vSGA is more for the Horizon.
Best spot for nvidia drivers is nvidia.co.uk (yes, UK site, not US) where you select 'beta' driver form where you can see all driver products nvidia ever released.

OK thanks! but when i search for K5000 graphics then i only find drivers for esx 5.5

does this also work on esx 6?

i can use pci passtrough but then i can add the card only to one vm and that is also not the solution!
It supports only vDGA mode, i.e PCI passthrough. It means that your host hardware must support PCI passthrough and you install normal desktop drivers in the guest OS.
ok that i understand. but i can add the card only to one vm?
