Install VPX Agent on X86/NVIDIA Server

Install NVIDIA drivers and the Docker engine

Check our system requirements first!
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.
