    I hit the Register button and it took awhile for it to give me feedback that it was working. I'd say hit the button and just leave the page up and check back in 5 mins later.

    Do you have to attend live session to this to get voucher or will watching the recordings still make you eligible?

    They haven't been very clear about that. We will just have to see.

    It looks like they are offering a second session for the 25th and 26th and an on-demand version on the 27th. The following is copy and pasted from the link that follows...

    Registration for the live course November 19 & 20 has closed due to high demand. We will re-broadcast the event on November 25 & 26 from 11:00pm Pacific until approximately 3:30am each day. During the re-broadcast Microsoft experts will be answering questions in real time. If you attend the re-broadcast or take the on-demand version of the course which will be available November 27, you’ll get a free voucher for the Microsoft Virtualization Specialist Certification - Exam74-409. Register below for the re-broadcast with live Q&A on November 25 & 26. The recording will be available for on demand viewing November 27.

    I signed into the initial session on the 19th & 20th I came in about 30 minutes late and it was all ready midnight so I only stayed for about 10 minutes. Whether this constitutes as "attended" in the eyes of microsoft I am not sure but I have yet to receive a voucher. I am hoping to sit down this weekend for the on-demand course.

    Will report back if I receive a voucher.

    I just received the email as well. I registered for mid January--was hoping to schedule at the latest possible date (6/30/2014) so we shall see!

    Edit: I did not attend the live course although I was registered for it. They also provided a link to the recordings in the email with the voucher link.

    So I got my voucher and email today. But it sounds like you need to register now, or can you wait until you are ready?? I am looking at about 4 months, roughly. Any input would be appreciated. Thank you for registering for the free 74-409 Server Virtualization with Windows Server and System Center exam voucher. The number of free exams is limited so schedule your exam soon.

    Your personal voucher number is:

    XXXXXXXXXX

    This VOUCHER number is valid for the following:

    74-409 Server Virtualization with Windows Server and System Center exam

    Please make a note of this voucher and print out this page and keep it in a safe place. You will need this voucher to register for your free retake in the event that you fail your initial exam.

    VOUCHER EXPIRATION:

    These vouchers expire on June 30, 2014. All exams must be taken by June 30, 2014.

    NEXT STEPS

    When you are ready to take your exam, please follow these steps:

    1. Visit http://www.prometric.com/microsoft and click the "Start" button.
    2. Follow the onscreen prompts to schedule your appointment including selection of your country, exam, testing center, and exam date. Note: You will be required to log in during the process.

    I signed up. I got a link to an archived video of the session, so I can watch the entire thing on my own time. I have the same email as the post above me, with the exam voucher code. I will probably take the exam after I finish my other windows exams, but before June 2014.

    The thing with these is the vouchers are available until X amount (however many they release) are registered. If you wait too long you won't be able to use it, hence why I scheduled mine already. It's a free voucher so not a big deal if you don't pass IMO.

    I briefly attended the course and received nothing even after registering for both sessions. I find it odd that I was left out of the email. Thanks for the heads up though as I have successfully claimed the voucher. Will be registering as soon as I decide which test center to use as this will be my first on site certification since moving to a foreign country.

    This is good advice. If you examine similar threads for CompTIA and others, beta exams and other special offers usually run out of vouchers pretty quick so it is always best to lock in your test dates.

    Best of luck to all.

    Default Register for exam.

    Well, I registered for the exam and scheduled it for Jan 27th, but will keep pushing it back until April 1st, if I fail, I will schedule for June 27th. Gives me 120 days for review and then 90 days for second shot. Second shot is offered apparently.

    I did watch the videos and started to watch them again on MVA, any suggestions on other material that I can review in preparation for this exam??

    Any labs on MVA??

    I have downloaded two books,
    Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Installation and Configuration Guide
    Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V Cookbook

    and looking to get

    Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V: Deploying Hyper-V Enterprise Server Virtualization Platform

    Just not sure I the cost is worth the material.

    And I am planning to review the videos on Puralsight on Virtualization
    I hope these will provide enough information.

    Any suggestions??

    I did not even realize that there was a second shot on this voucher. I had to go back to the email and verify. That is really cool.

    What do you think guys: (from the exam voucher mail form MS)

    Please make a note of this voucher and print out this page and keep it in a safe place. You will need this voucher to register for your free retake in the event that you fail your initial exam.

    This means, that you have two free shots? = If you fail at the first attempt, the 2nd retake attempt with the same code is also free?
