We are interested in getting NFR licenses for VMware. Can anyone tell me the path to do this? Do you have to be a VCP in order to get these? I keep seeing conflicting statements on how to obtain the NFR. Some are saying you don't have to be certified and some are saying you do. Any help is appreciated... Thanks!

Become a VMware Partner.

http://www.vmware.com/partners/

or contact a VMware Partner and ask for Evaluation Licenses.

You could also train and certify as a VCP.

What NFR licenses are you after, because VMware has many 60 day trial downloads available?

We are going to be reselling vmware so I was hoping we could have a NFR license to use in-house on our servers. Most of the other vendors we deal with do this so I was wondering if VMware did the same thing. We are currenlty running on a trial but wanted a more permanent solution.

Yes, VMware do, through the Partner Network. NFR licenses for use on your own servers, and Not For Resale or Evaluations.

That is my question though, at what point can I get NFR. I've already read through a lot of this stuff on their website. I just need to know if I have to be certified or what I need to do.

No VCP is requried. But you do need to complete Sales Training at Partner University.

You need to register.

Join the Program, select which Program is right for your organization.

Registered Partner

As a Registered Partner the VMware Partner Program enables you to extend your company’s market
reach, build customer credibility, and develop your skills with free online training required to move to
the Professional level. Registration is simple and there is no program fee.

Professional Partner Level

By completing the free online training, partners receive additional support in building their
virtualization businesses such as, access to the entire product line and a listing in the VMware
Partner Locator.

Enterprise Partner Level

Enterprise partners demonstrate extensive expertise in working with VMware technologies by
earning their Infrastructure Virtualization Competency. Depending on partner type, partners
may earn all the financial incentives under the advantage+ opportunity registration
program, access to additional services IP, and extensive support in building their VMware
virtualization solutions.

Premier Partner Level

Premier members are our most qualified partners and have earned the highest
level of membership. They gain the most extensive financial benefits, have
access to prevalent resources in building a successful VMware virtualization
license and service practice, and have the opportunity to work closely
with a dedicated VMware account manager.
Infrastructure Virtualization Competency


You'll need to comlete some one line training, VMware Sales Professional (VSP), and VMware Technical Sales Professional (VTSP), I think for NFR, you also need to pay a program fee, and then you are entitled to receive NFR.
