VMware vExpert 2018 Announcement

Just back from my company's Tech Summit and waiting for the announcement to be made.

The very next day an email came in and the announcement was made here. Did a quick check on the list of candidates, there was a total of 1525 who made it this year.

Congrats to everyone who made it this year.

Am glad to be part of this community for the 7th year running since I started paying forward this blog, discussion group, videos, etc.

For those who didn't make it or have not apply for it, do attempt it you never know when you are actually making your effort rewarded.


Update 19th Mar 2018
The number is still increasing to 1533 as there is some pending application that got approved.
You can follow the stats here with breakdown https://vexpert.vmware.com/directory/stats.

Recently encounter valid license key but not accepted by the system. This was done on vRealize Operations as shown below. Was adding the license key for vRealize Operations for Horizon Adapter.


A license gotcha here, it seems that VMware has a fixed format for all the license key. It should come in 5 segments instead of 4, each with 5 digits.


Sometimes simple things like this might just slip our eyes.
