Ok, so like 99% of my blog entries are about things not working quite the way I think they should and here’s another example. When linking your Passport account to your MSDN Subscription you’re asked to provide your Benefit Access Number. The number they’re looking for is your Technical ID available on Microsoft Parter Program site. Under Requirements & Assets click Assign Contact Roles.
This method didn’t work for me on the day I received my MSDN shipment – I had to wait a couple days for it to work.
