One thought on “GPU Mode switching for Nvidia GRID 2.0

  1. Hi Jason, Thank you for this video post. I would like to know if you could help me out with a Hardware issue using 4 NVIDIA TESLA M60 on a DELL T630 Poweredge.

    My goal is to use one of my 4 TESLA M60 on one VM using DDA (Not RemoteFX).
    I have checked you post on the GRID NVIDIA Forum, I have run the Linux bootable ISO to switch Graphics mode from Compute to Graphics on my 4 TESLAs, unfortunately Once I changed the GPU mode, Server freaked out and I was getting weird hardware errors. I am already in contact with DELL to verify what went wrong.

    My Main question to you is:

    In order to use those GPUs (Or only one) on DDA, Do I still need to Convert the GPU mode from Compute to Graphics and I also Have to "see" the GPU in Hyper-V, even though I am not enabling RemoteFX?

    First time I tried to activate DDA, Everything went perfectly well. I have gone through all powershell commands, I dismounted form Host, I mounted it to my VM, I have installed the same driver on the VM for the Tesla M60, rebooted normally, but unfortuantely once I opened a GPU test, performance was very poor, it seems that the VM was somehow still using the Onboard Hyper-V GPU.

    Do you have any idea what I did wrong?
