Customer Responsibilities

To receive services under Skyhigh Security Hardware Technical Support and Warranty coverage, please be aware that you are responsible for the following:

  • Use of diagnostic tools to assess the hardware issue. Skyhigh Security in-house and appointed technicians may require you to use diagnostic tools specific to your appliance model to troubleshoot the issue and validate the need for replacement. Use of these diagnostic applications is required before a part and/or technician can be dispatched. Their use may also be required during a technician’s visit.

  • For additional information on how to obtain and use the system diagnostics, please click here.

  • Unless you have purchased Same Day On-Site support, you are responsible for the replacement of all customers replaceable units (CRUs).

  • A monitor, keyboard, and mouse must be available for connections to the appliance during telephone troubleshooting and on-site repair.

  • A backup of all appliance configuration data (as described in the product documentation) must be available.

  • We recommend that you have product identification information ready at the time of any contact with Skyhigh Security Support. This includes the serial number for the appliance and your entitlement or grant number.

  • All software re-imaging, upgrading and patching is in your responsibility.

  • When preparing access to secure environment(s) including dark data centers and remote sites, please ensure access is enabled in advance to all environments required, so troubleshooting can proceed restriction-free.

Hardware Case Workflow

 We kindly ask for your patience and cooperation throughout this workflow.

1 Skyhigh Security Support will try to collect as much information regarding your hardware issue to validate your support entitlement.
2 When Skyhigh Security Support is troubleshooting your issue, we may also try to collect system logs from your appliance remotely.
A The hardware issue is resolved by Skyhigh Security Support without further investigation or escalation.
B1 and C2 If your case is passed on to our partner support service NCR as a diagnosed part issue, NCR will ask you to reconfirm your contact and location details, to ensure that parts are delivered correctly.
C1 If your case is passed to NCR as an undiagnosed issue, remote troubleshooting will be attempted by NCR. If this cannot be undertaken, an on-site visit may be arranged and you will be asked to confirm site access has been enabled.
B2 and C3 To ensure that diagnosed customer replaceable units (CRUs) are delivered correctly, NCR will ask you to reconfirm your contact and location details.
B3 and C4 To ensure that diagnosed field replaceable units (FRUs) are delivered correctly and installed by a field engineer, NCR will ask you to reconfirm your contact and location details and to confirm that site access has been enabled.
D1 If the issue is not a replaceable part, the case is passed to Skyhigh Security Support for further remote troubleshooting. If not resolved, NCR may be required to undertake non-standard tasks on site and you will be asked to assist with arranging site access.

The following diagram shows how the above steps and substeps are related to each other in the workflow.
