This guide should be used as a reference when creating a Microsoft support ticket. It will describe how to raise the ticket, as well as what attachments you should supply to Microsoft to speed up their investigation.
It is highly suggested to gather all of the suggested attachments before creating the ticket. This means you can include them on the ticket creation itself. Supplying Microsoft with the most information as possible will make it less likely that they will require assistance.
If even after supplying all of these attachments Microsoft requires more information, they may request a "Fiddler Trace". This is a more detailed Network trace that you capture while re-producing the issue. They will provide full instructions on how to complete this process via email, along with a One-Time-Password so they can receive this.
