VMware highly recommends that you take advantage of VMware’s online knowledge base, documentation and discussion forums—complimentary resources that may lead directly to the answers needed.
If you cannot find an answer to your support issue, you can file a support request with VMware technical support. Support requests can be submitted through the VMware Web site or by phone and responses are sent by email.
To receive access to complimentary support, your product must be registered. Registration occurs automatically if you purchased your product from the VMware Online store.
Once your complimentary support period ends, you may continue to use VMware's free online resources, or if you need additional assistance, you may also purchase telephone incident support.
