The PVS system that I downloaded was: DSME715_SS_PVS_20150224. I also have the VMWare Player installed as well. However, when I go to extract the files from the downloaded PVS into a folder, it throws me an error message stating "0x80004005: Unspecified Error
For some students sometimes the connection with the exercise system is dropped, meaning http://prpc.local:8080 is not reachable anymore. We found out that this is due to a bug in the avahi-daemon on the exercise system. Logging in as user architect with password password, resolves the issue because as part of the login script we restart the avahi-daemon. After logging in as architect nothing else needs to be done. Just go back to the browser and refresh the screen.
BTW, This is only an issue with the Pega Marketing 7.13 exercise system. It is resolved with the latest version of the exercise system Pega Marketing 7.21 because we switched from “prpc.local” to a fixed IP-number.
Thank you for the answer. If it happened again, I know what to do.
However, after spent day and night trying to make the PVS working, I thought to myself this was another try, if it was not working then I skip the exercise on the training, however it worked.
what I did was:
Unzip the VM image into desktop on the sub folder name “PegaVM” which is exactly the same as mentioned in the starting guide and do not change any configuration just add the image to the Virtual Box and run.
Moreover, I am using Virtual Box 5.0.10 on Windows 7 64 bits.
On Virtual Box, the network configuration under the Preference are as below:
Pega Academy courses are based upon a specific version of the product. For example all Decisioning & Marketing course names that end with "... (7.21)" are based upon Pega Marketing 7.21. and these courses all share the same exercise system.
So if you are looking for an environment with Pega Marketing 7.21 on it, simply enroll into one of the 7.21 courses and download the exercise system.
I will start from scratch , ie. download the image and try to replicate your environment. Just a final check are you running 32 bit or 64 bit version of the browser. You will find it on the help about screen. Also, which version of java? Control Panel->java->java tab click on View button
If you could take the screen shots and embed them in the response. If this is a problem send an email directly to me Paul.Hirszowicz@pega.com
sorry one more question. If you enter http://192.168.56.101:8080 do you get a Pega Academy screen? I am assuming the 192.168.56.101 is the address of your system, you wll see it on the login page for the VM.
