You can configure the currently supported Linux distributions to take advantage of NVIDIA virtual shared pass-through graphics acceleration (vGPU) capabilities on the ESXi host.
Horizon Agent for Linux only supports vGPU capabilities, and does not support virtual dedicated graphics acceleration (vDGA).
Keep in mind the following points when configuring a Linux desktop to support vGPU capabilities:
- You must use the NVIDIA Linux VM display driver that matches the ESXi host GPU driver (.vib). See the NVIDIA website for information about driver packages.
- To support vGPU capabilities on cloned VMs, first complete the graphics setup in the base VM and then clone the VMs. The graphics settings work for cloned VMs and no further settings are required.
