How to Save a Service Report from the A2000 Series

A Service Report is a detailed report covering the configuration and status of all components of the A2000 series. A Tech Support Agent or a Field Applications Engineer will request a Service Report for the purposes of diagnosis and troubleshooting a reported issue.

These instructions can also be found on page 239 of the Vess A-Series NVR Storage Appliance Product Manual Version 1.2

To save a system configuration file:

1. Click on the Subsystem icon (IP address and device name) in Tree View to open the Subsystem Information display.
2. Click the Save button in the Save System Service Report row of the information display.
Information for the report is gathered and compiled. This action takes up to a few minutes, depending on the size of your RAID system.
3. Determine where you want to store the file on the Host PC, then click the Save button in the pop-up menu.
The report saves to your Host PC as a compressed HTML file.
4. Double-click the downloaded file to decompress it.
5. Double-click the report to open it in your default browser.

Once you have the service report file, you can email it or upload it to your support case to the technical support agent that has been assigned to your case.
