Sorry for the question, but is there an alternative help when it comes to Cisco troubleshooting?  I mean this more as an alternative to EE?  More like a second opinion on troubleshooting?

I normally go to if EE doesnt assist with cisco specific troubleshooting - its a community forums, but expect some decent help.

Besides having a support contract iwth Cisco, there is the actualy Cisco website can sometimes be helpful. Although if you just bought any of the products you have a year's worth of support direct from Cisco.

The TAC (Cisco helpline) is probably the best hotline above all manufacturers. If you're under contract : open a ticket.
If not, try with your integrator.
Then... dig here or on the website.
Good luck
