  2. Login on to the Server/PC that is inaccessible with an account that has Administrator privileges.
  3. Connect the server virtual network adapter back in while logged on.

Applications for VMware vExpert 2014 are now open

Applications for the 2014 vExpert program were officially opened this weekend. Submit your application at :http://blogs.vmware.com/vmtn/2014/02/vexpert-2014-applications-open.html

VMware vExpert 2014

Some changes have been highlighted this year as there is now a fast track application process for 2013 vExperts.

Changes for the 2014 vExpert Program
This year we are implementing two new changes to the vExpert program. The first change is fast track current vExperts into the 2014 program. If you are a current 2013 vExpert, your 2014 application process has been shortened. Since you are a proven vExpert all we want to know is what you have been doing since the May 2013 vExpert announcement. Simple, right?”

Also new for 2014 is that there will be an ongoing open application each quarter for nominations with in 2014 which is especially handy for those that did not make the first cut or maybe would like to get in and apply later on in the year.

“The second change is quarterly nominations into the 2014 vExpert program. We will leave the application open year round and at the end of each quarter we will begin the voting process for new vExperts from the previous quarter. So even if you are not picked to become a vExpert 2014 right away, we will allow for quarterly voting and nominations.”

You have until March 6th to get your application. Good Luck.
