NIVDIA NVS 310 installation on T440 and iDRAC9 can't detect GPU

I have installed GPU NIVDIA NVS 310 (Dell part # K3WRC ) on my T440 (2 CPUs and 2 system fans,  2 750W PUs).

Somehow, iDRAC can not detect the CPU is installed.

Any suggestion?

I had same issues you are facing. try the following steps:

From System BIOS -> Integrated devices ->  Embedded video Controller -> change to "Disabled"

Memory mapped I/O base -> from  56 Tb to 12Tb.

After that, just download and install the correct NVIDIA drivers on the OS you are running.

Thanks for the update.

I had checked over and over again, and there is no option for "Embedded video Controller" under System BIOS -> Integrated devices even cold boot the system and iDRAC.

Interested to me is that Lifecycle has reported GPU. Something is disconnected here...

reboot - F2 (System Setup) -> System BIOS -> System BIOS Settings -> Integrated Devices 

Check the options

Embedded Video Controller -> Default is Enabled (Switch to Disabled)

Memory Mapped I/O Base -> Default is 56 TB (change to 12 TB)

apply changes and install nvdia drivers on the OS.

The question here is, does the card work in the host OS?

From my point of view, we should focus on this first. As Joey mentioned, it looks like a bug in iDRAC firmware, so this is just a "cosmetical" issue, for now.

 

The settings in BIOS will take effect right before the host os boots, I can't imagine that this will do a change on the behavior of iDRAC.

After I've applied those changes and install the NVDIA drivers on the OS I was able to use the GPU card

From the initial question, it just appears that the card is not completely managed by iDRAC. The TO never mentioned if the card works in OS or not.

That's why my last question here - does it work in OS?

I installed my NVS 310 into one of my Inspiron desktops with running Windows 10, the Windows 10 was able to identify the video card.

Installed the latest driver from Nvida, and checked the task manager, the GPU option was available (As I posted previous messages).

According to the T440 spec (https://i.dell.com/sites/csdocuments/Shared-Content_data-Sheets_Documents/en/PowerEdge-T440-Spec-She...), the NVS 310 is listed.

However, novahertz brought my attention that I did have a problem of finding "Embedded Video Controller" (Thank novahertz!!)

Yes, the card is supported.

My question is, is it also seen in the host OS on the T440?

What OS do you run on that machine?

 

Regardless of what the iDRAC shows, and btw. iDRAC does see the card as you can see on the screenshot you posted before, it shows on slot 3 Description: GF119 [NVS 310], so it is detected.

 

Do you see the card in the host OS?

I am running Solaris 11.4.

Based on the command "prtconf -v", it shows the GPU info:

I believe that MVS 310 is online.
