NVIDIA vGPU for vSPhere/ESXi is a premium VMware-licensed feature

VMware does not include NVIDIA vGPU in its Standard Editions and customers wishing to use the vGPU feature must purchase an Enterprise Plus edition or higher. See: http://www.vmware.com/products/vsphere/compare.html

Symptom/Error

Symptoms reported include:

·        Not able to see the vGPU options

·        If you create on a host that has the right license, you can not start the VM on an incorrectly licensed one.

Solution

Customers should consult the licensing documentation for the appropriate version of vSphere/ESXi and will need to license all hosts appropriately for their vGPU needs. See: http://www.vmware.com/products/vsphere/compare.html
