I have 10 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8GB that I need to distribute around my servers. The more we have in one machine, the better. The problem I have now is weird: for some reason, the motherboard of some of my DELL servers is not detecting a fully plugged (8xPIN connector and all) GPU. This in not at the level of the OS, since I don’t see any illuminated logo or rotating fans once the GPU is plugged. Hell, it doesn’t even list on “lspci”. Some tuning is needed.
We have an “old” version of the servers to play with. I start by installing a clean desktop version of my OS of choice, Centos7, no GPU inside.
