This topic describes how to manually install and activate a GRID driver on a GPUVM instance that runs a standard Linux image.
If the vGPU is running an operating system image with the GRID driver preinstalled, you only need to activate the GRID driver. You do not need to manually install the GRID driver.
Download the GRID driver installation package.
Set the mode of the installation package file to execute.
chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-430.30-grid.run
Before performing the operations described in this topic, make sure you have set up a license server and completed the license configuration. For more information, see Set up a license server.
To activate the GRID driver:
Open file gridd.conf.
cp gridd.conf.template gridd.conf
ServerAddress= /* IP address of the license server */
ServerPort=7070 /* Port number of the license server, which is 7070 by default */
FeatureType= /* Enter 4 for CUDA computing */
systemctl restart nvidia-gridd
systemctl status nvidia-gridd
If the GRID driver has been successfully activated, the License acquired successfully message is displayed.
