VM Clone Requirements for Setting Up 3D Graphics
You must consider the following requirements for VM Clone before setting up 3D graphics.
For vGPU and vSGA, complete the graphic setup in the base VM. Clone the VMs. The graphic settings work for cloned VMs and no further settings are required.
For vDGA, complete the graphic setup in the base VM. Clone the VMs. However before you power on the cloned VMs, you must remove the existing NVIDIA pass-through PCI device from the cloned VM and add the new NVIDIA pass-through PCI device to the cloned VM. NVIDIA pass-through PCI device cannot be shared between VMs. Each VM uses a dedicated NVIDIA pass-through PCI device.
