Hands on Labs from VMware/Coursera don’t work – “Networking and Security Architecture with VMware NSX”

This post was originally published on this site



I enrolled in COURSERA to the course “Networking and Security Architecture with VMware NSX”; all the videos and instructors are from VMware.


For the moment the two labs that has been assigned in VMware hands on lab environment via a link are not available anymore.

HOL-1903-01-NET – VMware NSX – Getting Started

HOL-1903-02-NET – VMware NSX – Distributed Firewall and Micro-Segmentation


If I click the link in coursera the I end up in a page like here




then after you click “Start Lab” you end up in a registration page like the following




This page I have filled out many times already.  It keeps coming back to the same.

After I accept the terms and start the free trial I end up in the following page




And this circle never ends.

I know I have an account for this hands on lab with VMware that is active because I have managed to do a different lab; “HOL-2026-01-NET – VMware NSX-T: Getting Started”.

That lab was possible to access and finish it.


Problem is that the assignments are related to the environments created on those labs (1903-xx) ; so is almost impossible to follow up in a different lab.


Another problem is that sometimes the login I have normally used simply does not work.

The VMware login system keeps telling is not possible to find the user; but for sure it has work many times.





Please any help you can give will be highly appreciated.
