Known Issues

This section provides summaries of the issues in the DGX Software for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Reboot Hang after Configuring RAID


DGX H100 System with EL9-23.08 and RHEL 9.1 or 9.2


After installing the DGX H100 Configurations group and configuring RAID with the sudo /usr/bin/ -c -f -5 command and rebooting, the system can hang and display console messages like the following example:

[ 1944.542085] md: md124 stopped.
[ 1944.545711] md: md124 stopped.


Perform a power cycle to reboot the system successfully. The system boots normally on subsequent reboots.


Before rebooting, this issue is triggered by a RAID State of active, degraded, recovering that can be displayed by running the sudo mdadm --detail /dev/mdXXX command. Replace XXX with the RAID array that you configured with the command.

Refer to the following sample output:

$ sudo mdadm --detail /dev/md125

MOFED mlnxofedinstall reports “Current operation system is not supported” using RHEL 9.2


EL9-23.01 and RHEL 9.2 with MLNX_OFED_LINUX-5.8-


When installing MLNX MOFED driver from the downloaded ISO using mlnxofedinstall --add-kernel-support the system generates a warning: “Current operation system is not supported!”


Specify the last supported version of RHEL on the commandline by adding “–distro rhel9.1” `` mlnxofedinstall --distro rhel9.1 --add-kernel-support


The current MLNX MOFED installer script can require the most recent supported OS to be specified by name if the OS is upgraded before the installer support is added for that OS version.

Precompiled GPU Driver 525 package is not available for Rocky 9.1


Rocky 9.1 with EL9-23.01


The Pre-compiled GPU Driver might not support the installed Rocky Linux kernel.


You can install the GPU driver by using the DKMS subsystem by running the following commands:

sudo dnf module reset -y nvidia-driver
sudo dnf install kernel-devel-$(uname -r) kernel-headers-$(uname -r)
sudo dnf module install nvidia-driver:525-dkms

Yellow screen appears during RHEL 9.1 installation


When installing the RedHat Enterprise Linux 9.1 ISO on a DGX Station V100, the first installation page shows a yellow screen. This can persist through the installation process and when complete.


Install RedHat Enterprise Linux 9.0 on the DGX Station V100, then perform the over the air (OTA) update for the latest RHEL9 version and the DGX EL9-23.01 updates.

DGX A100: VBIOS cannot update due to running service processes


VBIOS fails to update on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9 because service(s)/process(es) are holding onto the resource about to be upgraded.


The following services (system processes) must be stopped manually for the firmware update to start:

  • process nvidia-persistenced

  • process nv-hostengine

  • process cache_mgr_event

  • process cache_mgr_main

  • process dcgm_ipc

If xorg is holding the resources, try to stop it by running

sudo systemctl stop (display manager)

where the (display manager) can be acquired by

cat /etc/X11/default-display-manager

NVSM Unsupported Drive Error


When running nvsm show storage, the NV-DRIVE-01 alert displays an “Unsupported Drive Configuration” message.


The following services (system processes) must be stopped manually for the firmware update to start:

  1. Create a config file to disable nvme multipath:

    sudo sh -c 'echo "options nvme-core multipath=n" > /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-nvme.conf'
  2. Recreate the initramfs.

    dracut --force /boot/initramfs-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)
  3. Reboot the system.

    sudo systemctl reboot

The message might be displayed when you log in or when you run the nvsm show alert and nvsm show storage commands and can be safely ignored. This issue will be fixed in a future release.

Tuned profiles do not take effect in graphical mode


DGX tuned profiles might not take effect due to a known Red Hat Enterprise Linux 9 issue. This affects systems that use a graphical target mode.


This issue can be fixed by running the following commands:

  • Mask the power-profiles-daemon service then tuned is able to start during boot.

    systemctl mask power-profiles-daemon
  • Reboot the system
