After you purchase subscription, VMware sends you a service welcome email.

The welcome email is entitled, "Welcome to vSphere Advantage." If you do not recall seeing it, check your spam message or corporate spam filter. This email contains a unique service activation link that directs you to the VMware Cloud (VMC) Console. It is important to use this service activation link when you log into the VMC Console for the first time. If you still cannot find the email, ask your VMware Sales representative or VMware Partner to resend the email with the service activation link.

  1. Click the service activation link that was provided to you in the service welcome email.

    You will be directed to the VMC Console.

  2. Use your Customer Connect credentials to log in and create your VMware Cloud account.
