Im sure this has been asked before... but i seem to have the mondays... and I can remember how to resolve this error when trying to connect to a smarts domain.
My test fails when I test creation. the old one is generating this alert - attempting to connect to the broker x.x.x.x failed: not currently connected. On Environment Overview the Collection Status is down. However, I am logged into the sam domain with the same creds and have no issues. The only difference between my connection to smarts and the vcops vapp is our subnets. I can telnet from my analytics server to the default port.
