I thought it'd be neat to check this out, and have only looked at demo 4 but all collections are currently in a failed state. As the demo user, I have very limited visibility, so I cannot really investigate much beyond that. I'll see if they have a feedback section.

Thanks,

Hello,

I'm Craig Lee with Blue Medora and lead our demo env team.

In all of our demo environments the adapters are in the "failed" state because its running in a Historical Mode (HVM). The data is still being replayed, so there are metrics in the objects and alerts, but if you look at the adapter themselves, they will always look like they are down on an HVM system.

Yes, the demo user on VROPS is a non-admin user, so they can't look at the adapter configuration. Thank for digging in though.

Let me know if you see issues with the dashboards or object metrics.

You can email demosupport@bluemedora.com for any issues or questions.

Thanks,

Craig
