Veritas Support Customer Experience Leader
Hi all, see the attached high-level timeline of customer/partner-facing impacts for our system upgrade this coming weekend. In terms of the things you would notice this weekend when seeking support from us, here is the high-level:
Thanks for your patience as we make this first HUGE step to an improved online Veritas Support experience.
Hi all, looks like we are ahead of schedule right now by 2 hours. So we are providing an updated timeline.
Hi all, we are live with our new Veritas Support site. I am going to create another discussion to gather feedback from you all. Thanks, Kelly
Kelly, is there another discussion for support feedback? One issue I see is the new Technote platform doesn't seem to include which NetBackup versions, platforms a specific issue affects and whether there is a fix. Did I miss something? Thanks, Andrew
Hi Andrew - Thanks for the feedback. Regarding your question, we made a decision to exclude versions as a filterable attribute for Knowledge Base and Alert Articles. In order for filtering by version to work correctly, the version tagging has to be accurate. The more that version info is out of date, the more likely it is that a user will unintentionally filter away a piece of content that might have solved their issue. Keeping version info up to date requires a lot of manual labor - every time a new version of software is released, all Articles tagged to the previous version have to be reviewed to see if they still apply to the new version.
We have instead asked authors to annotate version or platform specific Articles with appropriate details so that users will know. I know that is not a perfect answer, but I think it is the only realistic approach.
Thanks again for the feedback!
