CISCO Warranty Advice

My apologies if this is completely off-topic, but I was hoping someone may be able to point me in the right direction as I don't want to open a TAC unecassarily.

We have an SFP adaptor (GLC-ZK-SM) that was connecting to a CISCO 3825. The adaptor stopped working after a few months use.

I am having a completely terrible time getting the reseller to honour a warranty / RMA fix for the component.

From what I have found directly on CISCO's site, Optical Networking products offer a 5 year limited hardware warranty, so I really don't see what the problem is.

Do I need to try and open a TAC for this?

Thanks,

Mario

You can try but typically in my experience the reseller would have needed to register the sale with Cisco for you to be able to open a TAC case and get an RMA put in. If your reseller is giving you a hard time, they may not have been authorized in the first place and probably didn't do this step.
