    May I ask if you got another Nvidia card lying around (I know this question is a little odd but have you a Nvidia card lying around or in another system that you can try... :P ).

    Unfortunately, I don't have another Nvidia card lying around. This was the only graphics unit in my unraid build, since I opted for a cpu without iGPU.

    I think when you try it on a Windows machine, install the appropriate driver and hit it with a 3D load it will work but at least you can try if this will work.

    It turns out that after trying the card on a windows machine, none of the Nvidia drivers actually work, even when going back as far as v353, they just turn a black screen, so unless I'm misunderstanding, there is probably something fundamentally wrong with the card. Installing the drivers just throws errors and doesn't actually run other than a rudimentary display via microsoft compatible drivers. I remember a few years back the card used to work properly on that machine, so the card probably got messed up since then. :( But the card is still good to use to watch unraid booting and changing bios settings so there's that. 


    Thanks for all your help in diagnosing this with me. I should have caught that the graphics card itself was problematic by testing it with the nvidia drivers in Windows beforehand rather than assuming it worked because it was detected by windows and unraid. Hopefully I'll be able to get a new Nvidia card soon so I can finally make use of your awesome plugin!!

    Yes you can do that, you even don't have to start the array itself, just create a fresh Unraid USB Boot device if you got a USB key lying around and boot that on your main machine (of course stick the card in this system first :D ).

    Then request a Trial key, don't start the array, install the CA App, Download the Nvidia-Driver Plugin and see if it works.

    I threw the card into the other computer (an old oem machine with a motherboard from 2011!) along with a fresh unraid on a spare usb and am gettting the same message in the plugin and logs. I think there's either a problem with the card itself or maybe, as some digging online suggests, requires a way older nvidia driver to function (can't find the link but I think it was for quadros older than kepler). Or maybe the motherboards I'm using are just way too old. Is it possible to use a driver older than those select-able in this plugin?

    I don't understand what you mean exactly...

    I don't have any VM settings here I think.

    I never changed any VM settings and was referring to an image in your reply above that showed PCIe ACS override: disabled and VFIO allow safe interrupts: no.

    May I ask if this hardware configuration was working with the Nvidia drivers or is this a "new" built system?


    What video card is set to be used in the BIOS iGPU or the card in the PCIe slot?

    Try to disable VT-d and/or VT-x in the BIOS.

    Have you anything changed in the VM Settings:


    Ok, I tried disabling both in the bios as well as trying it with only VT-x disabled and only VT-d disabled, but the "no device found" message" in the plugin and the "RmInitAdapter Failed" error in the log have not changed in any of these bios combinations compared to having both enabled.


    I only recently moved this graphics card from a windows desktop so I had not previously tried it with any unraid nvidia build or driver workarounds. My VM settings match your image and my VMs are not running by default. My CPU does not have integrated graphics, but I have tried explicitly disabling integrated graphics in the bios and setting PEG (PCI-E) as the primary display.


    The only thing I can think to try at this point is stick the card into another desktop and boot with my unraid flash drive to check if the plugin recognizes it. Does the plugin have any requirements for the array to be started in order to recognize cards?  Thanks.

    Can you eventually give me the Diagnostics (Tools -> Diagnostics -> Download -> drag the file in this text box).

    Have you checked that eventually the display outputs on the other card?


    What driver version do you have installed?

    I have tried both driver version v460.56 and v455.45.01 on plugin 2021.03.07. About to try updating to Unraid 6.9.1.


    Edit: No change after update to 6.9.1, still no devices found :(

    I had a similar issues fixed it by doing the following. 


    - delete the nvidia plugin

    - grab fresh unraid kernel

    - install plugin and latest driver. 


    Maybe it helps. 


    I have not changed any hardware  settings.

    I appreciate the tip. I just tried booting with a fresh copy of Unraid 6.9 straight from the website and installing the plugin, but unfortunately I got the same "No devices were found" error.

  6. Hi, I'm getting the "No devices were found" error in the plugin and when trying "nvidia-smi" even though it detects my Quadro K4000 in system devices and with "lscpi" in terminal. I'm on stable Unraid 6.9.0 and Nvidia-driver version 2021.03.07. I am using a Gigabyte Z77X-UP4 TH motherboard and have Vt-x and Vt-D enabled in the bios. I tried it with and without the card plugged into a display. I've also tried bios resets, many restarts, re-seating the card, legacy boot mode, checking and unchecking vfio bind as advised by previous posts. I've also confirmed that the card can be detected in a Windows VM. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!


    Edit: I'm also getting a weird error in the logs RmInitAdapter failed and failed to copy vbios to system memory whenever i tried to run nvidia-smi or open the nvidia-driver settings page, as per the image.

    Also the card outputs properly to the external monitor and functions normally in a windows computer.
