The first step of this transition is to accept Partner Connect Program Agreement. VMware has already sent an email to your Primary Contact including a few links which you can click to accept the agreement. Accepting the agreement before Feb 29, 2020 would move your Partner stage into Enrolled-Authorized so you could continue to transact through the program.
The Email Subject Line contains “Partner Connect Click-to-Accept Agreement”. Alternatively, a copy of email template is attached. Please login to Partner Central first, and then click on the link so will navigate you to the agreement page.
