VM Clone Requirements for Setting Up 3D Graphics
You must consider the following requirements for VM Clone before setting up 3D graphics.
- For vGPU, 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.
