Just Another Way Stratodesk Enables Top Notch Customer Support

Sharing Support Files is Easier than Ever Thanks to New Web Functionality. Stratodesk provides top customer support for any issue that might arise while using Stratodesk software.

In fact, our excellent support is one of the many reasons why system administrators across multiple industries choose us to power and manage their complex VDI or DaaS environments of laptops, PCs, Thin Clients and ARM based devices. One of the ways that we ensure top notch support is through our versatile support file feature.
In order for us to best assist you, we need to first understand the problem you are experiencing as deeply as possible. One way that we are able to understand the ins and outs of the issue at hand is through our support file feature. The support file gives our techs more than a superficial look at your technical issue, providing us with vital information that we can use to fully diagnose an issue, and quickly respond with a solution.
Although Stratodesk software has included the ability to create support files for a long time time, our customers have from time to time experienced problems actually sharing those files with us. Simply put, sharing support files via email doesn’t always work. Sometimes, these important files are too big or blocked by an organization’s email security policy.
For this reason, Stratodesk has created a new and easy way for customers to share important support files with our technical team directly through our website, eliminating any hassle involved with sending files via email including blocked attachments or file sizes that are too large. Additionally, thanks to our new method, files are mapped automatically to support requests which ensures the quickest turn around from our tech team.

What exactly is a support file? 

A “Support File” (which you can get either through NoTouch Center or NoTouch OS) is an “tar.gz”-formatted file which acts as an archive containing runtime information such as which system processes are running, output of several diagnostic commands, a collection of all log files, hardware information including the PCI device list, USB device list, and DMI BIOS information.

Obtaining this file is easy –to learn how it is done, visit our knowledge base article on how to retrieve a support file, or follow these simple steps:

  1. On your normal Windows desktop, point your web browser to the client’s IP address or hostname using https. E.g. if the client’s IP address is 10.0.5.41, use https://10.0.5.41
  2. Accept the browser warnings regarding HTTPS (SSL/secure connection) certificates
  3. Login with your client administrator password
  4. On the left, click on “Support File” (“Diagnostic” section)
  5. Save the file and upload to https://www.stratodesk.com/upload-support-files/

Sharing Support Files via New Web Feature

With our new web functionality you can easily share your support files and any other important files such as Videos and/or documents directly with our technical support team through our website. To do this, follow these simple steps:

1. Send a support request to us at [email protected]

2. After sending your support request, upload your support file(s) on the Support File Page

3. Input your ticket number in the space provided and your support file(s) will be automatically mapped to your support request.

4. Our support techs will then work with you to quickly find a solution to your issue.

This new upload method allows us to tackle any technical issue that might occur and to respond to you expediently with the answer.

We always encourage customers to include a “Support File” when contacting Stratodesk support regarding a problem with NoTouch, as doing so gives the support team information integral for us to support you. We do ask, however, that you no longer share these important files via email, but instead take advantage of our new website functionality that allows users a more efficient way to share support files.
