TOLIS Group Technical Support
Due to power and weather issues dramatically affecting North Phoenix, our internet and phone communication systems are sufferring from recurring outages. Our ISP has indicated that things should stabilize on the 29th after they have replaced a failing piece of equipment. We apologize for the issue and will be back in touch with customers as soon as power and connectivity are restored.
Contacting TOLIS Group Support
We strive to make communicating with TOLIS Group's support as easy as possible and ask the following of our customers:

We offer free support during your demo period via email. Click to contact Support please use DEMO for the serial number requested in the body of the email.
For our customers with purchased licenses:
A current extended support agreement must be in place to receive support, or you must be within the first 30-days of product purchase to receive support.
• In order to assist, we will need your product serial number (Format: 1234-5678). We cannot accept support inquiries without your product serial number.
• It is helpful if you know your tape library/drive brand and type, as well as the connection interface (SAS, Thunderbolt, F-C, etc.), OS and version/kernel.

What Is Extended Support with TOLIS Group?
TOLIS Group provides Extended Support Agreements to customers that are outside of the initial 30-days of free technical support. A standard 1-Year (12 calendar months) agreement provides a variety of benefits and easy access to expert technical support which includes:
• Free product updates including free version changes & special discounts on applicable upgrades when moving to different BRU packages
• Unlimited assistance in which anyone within your organization may call
• Email, WebEx, phone, or remote login assistance available.
An additional benefit of technical support from TOLIS Group that is unlike any other support team, is that our technical support representatives do not have call time limits. Therefore, you will not be on the phone with one agent and after a specified period of time be transferred to another agent. Our representatives will be able to assist you via telephone for as much time that is needed.
Additionally, TOLIS Group does not have "levels" of support (i.e. Level 1, Level 2, etc...). All technical support agents are trained with the same knowledge and abilities. You can rest assured that the information and support you receive will be the same for any technical support agent that you may speak to on the phone or via the ticket system.
