Configuration Tips for GPU/vGPU

Configuration Tips for GPU/vGPU

Product Line:  VERDE

QA had some issues testing GPU.

They got one session to work but they had issues getting multiple concurrent sessions working.

We think it's because they have things configured incorrectly.

The Engineering QA had no such problem.

It's important to remember that when you configure the Gold Image you need to assign it to one of the GPU Passthrough slots:

Then, when a guest session is started using that Gold Image it will gain exclusive access to that specific slot.

If a 2nd guest session is started based on the same Gold Image then it won't be able to get the's already in use by the 1st session.

To support multiple concurrent sessions you would need to define multiple Gold Images each configured to use one of the available slots.
