NightWatchman Enterprise


A general methodology for investigating issues as well as identifying key issues and their resolutions.

For customers with a maintenance contract

Log-in to the 1E Support Web portal with the credentials from your maintenance contract – it provides issue tracking, product hotfixes and knowledge base articles for each product.

Before you raise a support case, we recommend you:

  1. Check the list of known issues to see if the problem you are encountering is listed and if we have a remediation for it.

  2. Check the other sections in the Troubleshooting section to see if we have a resolution to your problem.

  3. Check the latest Hotfix to see if this issue is known and already addressed in an hotfix.

  4. If you do not find what you want, create a technical report and submit that together with your support case.

Creating a technical report

Not having any these will very likely result in a longer resolution time as we will need to get in touch with you to obtain the missing files.

  1. Log files – it must include the recorded time when the issue took place. If it does not, delete the logs and rerun the steps to replicate the issue. The table below details the log files we require:
