Before following the steps in this guide, ensure that your environment has:

  • A working OpenShift cluster up and running with a GPU worker node. See OpenShift Container Platform installation for guidance on installing. Refer to Container Platforms for the support matrix of the GPU Operator releases and the supported container platforms for more information.

  • Access to the OpenShift cluster as a cluster-admin to perform the necessary steps.

  • OpenShift CLI (oc) installed.

  • Ensure that the appropriate Red Hat subscriptions and entitlements for OpenShift are properly enabled.


    The UBI-based driver pods of the NVIDIA GPU Operator require these Red Hat subscription entitlements so that additional UBI packages can be installed.
