Automatically Sending Crash Reports to Support

If an edge filer crash occurs, you can have the edge filer automatically send a report to CTERA support so that analysis of the crash can begin as early as possible.

Crash reports do not include sensitive or personal information. The reports are sent encrypted. The only identifying content in the crash report is the DNS name.

Click Enable to have the CTERA Edge Filer automatically upload crash reports to the CTERA support center in the event of a crash.

Click Disable if you no longer need to use this service after you enabled it.
