Recommended for customers on ACI releases 4.2(7r) and above or 5.2(3g) and above.

 

Are you tired of manually gathering ACI logs and tech-support data?

To this day, the process of gathering ACI logs and uploading them to your TAC case was cumbersome - you had to download them from APIC to your workstation and add them to the case manually. With our new TAC Assist feature, you can do that in a couple of clicks using dedicated app on your APIC. It will send all necessary data for selected devices to Cisco and our internal engine will automatically attach them to your TAC case.

Thanks to this app, you can reduce the time to resolve your issue and spend it on something that your business really needs!

 

You can ask Cisco Expert Stanislav Martinicky any Cisco ACI TAC Assist feature or Nexus Insights (NI) Cloud Connector application related question using the StanislavMartinicky_0-1649835720209.pngbutton on the bottom of this post. You can download below NI Cloud Connector poster in PDF version at the bottom of this post to access URL links.
