Got VMware Licensing Questions?

Ever since vSphere 4 came out we’ve had a surge in questions about the new licensing model. Did you know our Knowledge Base covers licensing as well as hard-core technical topics?

We tend to think of the Knowledge Base as a problem & fix resource, but we want to get the word out that it  also works as a general Q&A or FAQ resource.

Based on the kind of questions and issues that have come up we’ve compiled this list of the top Knowledge Base articles for Licensing.
