Web search is the most common way to troubleshoot VMware issues

Pasting the error code or issue symptom into a search bar usually leads to an existing KB article with the workaround or resolution.

IT vendors are doing a great job at documenting all the issues so 90% of the issues you encounter are known.

The VMware Knowledge Base (kb.vmware.com) and VMware Best Practices are the most trusted, complete and up-to-date public sources of known issues and best practices related to VMware products. This valuable information is typically used reactively after the problem already happened.

Up to 90% of the issues affecting virtualized environments are already known issues for which there is already a KB article describing Symptoms, Cause and Resolution. Most of these issues can be prevented by reversing the approach to working with the VMware KB articles in a proactive way.
