After you finish

A pop-up will appear with your support case number. A NetApp Support specialist will review your case and get back to you soon.

For a history of your support cases, you can click Settings > Timeline and look for actions named "create support case." A button to the far right lets you expand the action to see details.

It’s possible that you might encounter the following error message when trying to create a case:

You can check your list of NSS accounts at the top of the Create a Case form to find the right match, or you can seek assistance using one of the following options:
