Self-Help 101

The VMware Knowledge Base is at the very core of VMware Knowledge Management. It is a centralized repository of KB articles with known product issues, error messages, troubleshooting tips, best practices, and solutions. If you have not already done so, make sure to bookmark the KB home page.

The Knowledge Base allows you to search by product, error message, or article ID. The following Knowledge Base articles (KBs) contain more detail for using and searching the Knowledge Base: Using the VMware Knowledge Base and Searching the VMware Knowledge Base.

The Knowledge Base is just one of the self-help resources available. Our Knowledge Experience (KX) Team has been working diligently to produce and update a variety of technical content to ensure you can resolve your issues, without having to create a service request. Easily accessible content equals higher chance of issue resolution. More issues resolved equals fewer service requests, and this equals more time for you to get back to business! We are continually testing new ways to make this vital information accessible to our EUC community as quickly as possible.

The results?

Self-Help on Social Media

After researching the top call problems in support, our KX team produced a list of top 20 KBs to resolve these issues. Now, every month, a list of the top 20 KBs are posted on the Support Insider blog. For example, check out this top 20 KB list for VMware Horizon with View. A list you will definitely want to keep handy!

The good news is that you can subscribe to the Support Insider blog and receive support tips and KB-related discussions directly to your inbox.
