My mistake, you're correct. Just to confirm, did you in fact update the driver on this as of yet?
I believe with at least some of the Nvidia cards, the firmware package is included along with the driver. I'm not sure if that's the case with the NVS series or not, though. With the system detecting the card and identifying it correctly, just not populating it under the GPU heading, some sort of firmware issue is what I'd suspect.
Would it be possible to test the card in another T440? I'm curious if another iDRAC would exhibit the same behavior.
I've checked, there is no firmware update available in the Dell support site for downloads. Though, have you tried updating the hardware driver, the firmware package might be included. Can you check in lifecycle logs to see if there is any errors pertaining to the GPU? Have you tried soft reset the iDRAC?
There are reports about GPU not being detect in iDRAC and there are fixes coming for iDRAC firmware update in April.

I would give it a try. As it is somehow detected in the system (iDRAC and LCC) it might work, though.

Thank all replies.
I installed NVS 310 in one of Dell desktop with Windows 10 installed. Windows 10 was able to identified it as Nvidia NVS 310 without an addition driver. I also installed the latest driver from Nvida and the installation pack had no complain of GPU. I ran the GPU stress test and it was fine.
I put the GPU back into T440, and iDRAC can't detect GPU. I think that Joey is right that there is a bug in iDRAC9.
Since NVS 310 only use 20W or less, the PU requirement for 1100W is recommended.
