In this guide you will walk through registration and first time use of the Demo Portal.

Walkthrough Summary

  • Register for access
  • Open registration email
  • Sign in to Demo Portal
  • Set up My Services
  • OK let's go, open your favorite web browser and navigate to the Testdrive Portal at:

    https://portal.vmtestdrive.com
    	

    On the initial TestDrive landing page, click on the Sign Up button.

    First, enter your email address.

    Depending on your organization's access to TestDrive you'll be brought to the page to create your account or a page to tell us more info. If you're brought to the sign up page, enter your details. You'll receive an email with your credentials after filling out the form.

    If you're organization has not yet been approved for TestDrive you'll be brought to a page to tell us more about yourself. Partners can select "I am a VMware Partner", those who have been given a registration code can select "I have a TestDrive registration code", and all others can select "Other".

    Partners must complete VTSP in order to access TestDrive. Partners will be asked if they have completed VTSP. If you have completed it, you'll be prompted to fill out the sign up form. Next, a member of our partner team will verify you status and you'll get an email with your credentials once your status has been verified. If you have not yet completed VTSP you'll be given instructions for taking the exam.

    For those who have selected Other, meaning you are not a Partner, you'll need to contact your account representative. They can invite you to TestDrive for access.

    Once you have registered you'll be sent an email with your credentials. Navigate back to portal.vmtestdrive.com to login to the portal. 

    Log into the Demo Portal

    To add servies to your account click the "My Services" card.

    From the Services page, you can add any service that is available.

    That sums up registration and first use.  Here is a quick recap of what we just did!
