KBs What And Where To Find Them

My next VMware foundation topic is the VMware Knowledge Base[1]. It’s a great online self help resource for finding solutions to your problems. If you’re having a problem or getting an error, it’s probably not the first time someone has experienced that same issue.

On the off chance you are unique and figure it out, you can submit the fix and troubleshooting in a new Knowledge Base Article and be someone else’s hero. Take some time, before you actually need to use it, to look around and get familiar of where things are at.


The VMware Knowledge Base can be found at [1] kb.vmware.com. As of this post it is designed like below. The design may change, but there are some good sections to keep an eye on. The Weekly Digest can catch you up in a hurry!

Learn more about Using the VMware Knowledge Base by reading the KB 878 [2]
