I cannot find gpu in Standard NC6_Promo (6 vcpus, 56 GiB memory) instance RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all. 

    I just spun up an virtual machine (Standard NC6_Promo (6 vcpus, 56 GiB memory) instance) but I don't seem to find gpu on the machine.

    Also pytorch confirms it:

    AssertionError:

    I thought NC6 has a Nvidia gpu, what am doing wrong? 

    Any help is appreciated,

  • HI,

    I'm unsure as to what the command is trying to output or what it queries, but the NC series do have an NVIDIA Tesla GPU in them?

    Could this be an issue with what your command is querying?  (apologies if that seems a silly question but I dont know what your command is calling).

    Thanks,

    Matt

  • Hi,

    Looks like you dont have the NVIDIA drivers on that server.

    Please follow this document to install the required extension. Two options are there in the document to install the extensions.

    One is the maual methos. Other one is installing an Azure extension which installs the required drivers.  Going through the Azure extensions way will be easire.

    Both the methods are discussed on the doc.

    After installation, You can verify them. Steps are available in the doc itself.

    Install them and then try to execute the your python program.

    Let me know if you have error after that also.
