VMWare hosts and NVidia Graphics Cards

Hi all,

I need some assistance, we have 3 VMware hosts with 2 different GPU’s. So 2 of our hosts have a P40 and we bought a new host but we were only able to source RTX 8000 cards. The question we had as no one has been able to answer it easily, is that would Shared PCI work? I know it uses profiles and I was just wondering how it would work when we vMotion VM’s around. If it doesn’t work, is there a workaround other than shutting the VM off and changing the profile and turning it on again.

Thanks all!

  1. Based on my experience you can’t motion if your cards don’t match. So yes, your only choice when changing types is to shut down, change profiles, and power back on.
