NVIDIA K2 on VMware vSphere 6 crash

Today I was working for a customer that is having issues in their VDI environment. I thought, as twitter won’t let me write books larger then 140 characters, to make a post about it. So a short post about an issue that is bugging a customer and me.  The issue revolves around NVIDIA and VMware so far.

The environment

The environment is a VMware vSphere 6 environment with a couple of hosts where some are designated for normal VDI work and some for advanced or even power VDI GPU users. The environment is a VMware Horizon 7 VDI desktop where several desktops are fitted with a NVIDIA K2 Q240 profile. The desktops are non-persistent and VMware UEM is used to manage the user.

Users are engineers designing so they need the power and the desktop.

The issue

The issue is that since a couple of weeks the users are experiencing disconnects and after that a inability to reconnect to the desktop. This disconnect is not a random something but happens to all virtual machines on the host. Some might say the host has lost connection but it hasn’t. Others might argue that it’s just a loss of network and you could reconnect when that is up again, but that’s also not true.
