Install VPX Agent on X86/NVIDIA Server

Install NVIDIA drivers and the Docker engine

Check our system requirements first!

Install the Docker Engine

Install the NVIDIA drivers and CUDA

Install the NVDIA container toolkit

After you followed the installation guidelines you must be able to get a similar output

docker run --rm --gpus all nvidia/cuda:11.6.2-base-ubuntu20.04 nvidia-smi

Install Azure IoTEdge

Install IotEdge 1.4 (only the package aziot-edge is required)

Skip the container engine installation (you did that already)

Configure Azure IotEdge

You will receive a ZIP file from Swarm with configuration files. (Replace $ID with the device ID you received from SWARM)

sudo mkdir /opt/swarm/
sudo mkdir /opt/swarm/config
sudo mkdir -p /etc/iotedge/
sudo cp $ID/VPX-$ID/config.yaml /etc/iotedge/config.yaml
sudo chown iotedge:iotedge /etc/iotedge/config.yaml
sudo cp $ID/VPX-$ID/config.toml /etc/aziot/config.toml
sudo mkdir -p /var/lib/iotedge/hsm/
sudo cp $ID/all/azure-production-certificates/* /var/lib/iotedge/hsm/
sudo chown aziotcs:aziotcs /var/lib/iotedge/hsm/iot-edge-device-SwarmEdgeDeviceCA-full-chain.cert.pem
sudo chown aziotcs:aziotcs /var/lib/iotedge/hsm/
sudo chown aziotks:aziotks /var/lib/iotedge/hsm/iot-edge-device-SwarmEdgeDeviceCA.key.pem
sudo iotedge config apply -c '/etc/aziot/config.toml'

At this point check the IotEdge logs for any errors

iotedge system logs -- -f

You will now see your deployment in the SWARM Control Center as "Unnamed Device" with the registration ID:

At this stage, the IoT Edge runtime will pull the docker images and once finished the device can be configured in the Control Center.

docker ps -a
