Hyper-V 2012 R2 and Windows 7 SP1 VM with vGPU RRS feed

Answers

  • Nothing else to report, just that I've moved more VMs from the 2008 R2 server and haven't encountered the original problem so I guess we'll have to put it down to a "gremlin".

  • Hi Russell,

    You cannot use vGPU with RDP 8.0 enabled on Windows 7 host.

  • So, if I remove the RDP 8.0 update it should then work?

    I'm pretty sure I had the same problem before installing the RDP 8.0 update but will remove it and try again.

    One of the many TechNet articles I found (see link below) suggests that you can use Windows 7 clients with the RDP 8.0 update but when the vGPU is enabled it will only use RDP 7.1?

  • Dharmesh,

    I can't do any more testing until I'm on the client site tomorrow (Tuesday) but will update the post as soon as I can.

    I did seem to be able to connect to 2 x Windows 7 sp1 VMs via the RD Gateway and both showed the vGPU in the Device Manager. the only difference was that I was connecting directly to the VM rather than via RD Web Access.

    I'm not sure how this happened and it's why I want to carry out more testing on Tuesday.

    Cheers for now

  • OK, I've carried out some more testing on the client site and have been able to move a couple of existing VMs from their 2008 R2 Hyper-V server to the new 2012 R2 server.

    Both VMs are Windows 7 SP1 with the RDP 8.0 update installed and I can connect to them from a Thin Client running RDP 7.1 and a laptop running RDP 8.0.

    When I add the RemoteFX vGPU to them both I can still connect from both devices but, as suggested, when connecting from the laptop with RDP 8.0 I don't get the vGPU performance (but the vGPU is still shown in the device manager).

    It all looks good at the moment but I'm still concerned as to why I was unable to connect to the first VM I moved over (it was complaining about a error in the License network communication or similar).

    I'll keep testing and post anything else that might be useful.

    Cheers for now
