AHV supports GPU-accelerated computing for guest VMs. You can configure either GPU pass-through or a virtual GPU.

 

Let us say you have an AHV host with GPU compatible hardware and looking for a simple way to install the required drivers. 

Nutanix recommends a specific method for installing the Nvidia GPU host driver in AHV hosts. 

The method involves a script which is used for installation or upgrade of all the hosts in the cluster.

 

Go through the following document to understand the process in-depth 

 

Installing AHV GPU Drivers 

 

Have questions regarding the usage of the script?

 

  1.  What will happen if one of the nodes doesn’t have a GPU? 

  2.  What will happen if the driver version is different on one node than the rest of the cluster? 

  3.  How can I install the driver onto the new nodes only, without affecting the currently running nodes?

  4. Can I install different versions of the driver onto different nodes of the cluster?

 

 

The following knowledge base article can help you to get answers to the above-mentioned questions.
