If, during the seven-day period, the same issue resurfaces, the customer simply emails the case-owner, and the Technical Support Engineer will re-engage to continue the troubleshooting.
‘Closed’ places a case in a closed status. A summary of the issue along with the supporting resolution summary and supporting documentation, where available, is provided to the customer. Should the issue not be fully resolved, the case can be reopened for up to 14 days from being placed in this status. To reopen the case, click on the ‘Reopen Case’ Button and select the reason for reopening the case in the pop-up window (Image 14 and image 14.1).

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I share cases with my colleagues?
A: Case visibility on the portal is determined by the case contact’s org on the case. You can filter ‘Ownership’ by ‘My company’s cases’ and view all the cases associated with your organization’s account. Contacts that are not part of your organization will not be able to view cases for your organization. While you can view cases for your entire organization, the ability to close cases on the support website is limited to the contact who created the case.
Q: I am a Veritas Authorized Partner. How can I view cases that I have created on behalf of my customers?
A: Partners will be able to see cases they created on behalf of customers by filtering on ‘Cases created on behalf of customers’ under ‘Ownership’.
Q: I’m a customer. How can I view cases that a partner created for me?
A: Customers will be able to see cases that partners created on their behalf by filtering “Ownership” by “Cases created for me by partners”. These cases will be read only for the customer and any updates or changes to the case can be made by the partner who created it.
Q: I can’t see my cases on the support website:
A: Check the email address you are using to login to your account. Do you have more than one email address setup for logging into our website? If needed, support staff can help verify that your email address matches the account we have your cases associated with.
Q: If I change my primary Account ID, will I still have access to my closed cases under the old Account ID?
A: It depends. It’s important to know that a contact record can be associated with multiple accounts. If Veritas adds you to a new account, you’ll see all the cases associated with that new account under the ‘My company’s cases’ view. If your contact record has not changed and remains associated with the old Account ID, you will be able to see the cases you created (no matter what the status is) that are still associated with the old Account ID.
