I am in the process of signing up our company to be a partner/reseller of Office 365. I've made my way through the steps outline here:
However, the problem I'm running into is when I attempt to login to Office 365 using my Microsoft Partner account, I receive the following error:
Sorry, that didn't work
You signed in with your Microsoft account
Sign out of your Microsoft account and sign in with the Office 365 user ID assigned to you by your work or school.
Sign in with the Office 365 user ID assigned to you by your work or school. It looks like firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you still have trouble signing in, contact your admin.
I've also tried creating a new Microsoft login account and I still get the same message. Do I need to purchase Office 365 to obtain a login account BEFORE I can become a reseller? That seems silly (just like trying to figure out Microsoft's licensing mess), but that looks like it may be the only option.
Any one else have any insight on this?
