    Hi

    Tried my best to figure out the issue but I’m new to NoMachine.

    I run a Windows 10 VM in my server with an RTX 3050 6GB passed through to it but for some reason NoMachine won’t use it for hardware encoding. I have varified the hardware encoder works in other software its just NoMachine.

     

    Thanks

    Bradley

    Hi, can you send us the logs from the OS you are connecting to (i.e the NoMachine Windows server).  Please use the following instructions:

    https://kb.nomachine.com/DT07S00243
    To enable debug on Windows, open a CMD console as administrator:

    > %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\NoMachine\nxserver\nxserver.exe --debug --enable all

    Start a session as usual and then gather the logs:

    > %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\NoMachine\nxserver\nxserver.exe --debug --collect

    The log archive is named as: NoMachine-log-.zip (e.g. NoMachine-log-2018.09.27-11.44.01.zip) and stored in: %PROGRAMDATA%/NoMachine/var/log/archives on Windows 10/11. Send them to forum[at]nomachine[dot]com. Thanks!

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply!

    I’ve sent the email with the logs. Let me know if I need to redo them!

    Thanks for the help in advanced.

    We checked the logs and confirm that the problem is the same as the one reported here: https://forum.nomachine.com/topic/nomachine-not-using-gpu-for-encoding#post-47274 related to specific nvidia driver versions. We are currently investigating workarounds, but for the time-being you should try downgrading to an earlier driver version (535.129.03 appears to be ok) or continue to use software encoding.

    Ah, I see.

    I’ll try that older driver version and look out for updates to this.

    Thank you for the help!

    I forgot to post the link to the Trouble Report https://kb.nomachine.com/TR05V11159. You can use that to track when a fix has been released.
