I downloaded the LSA 7.3/7.4 VM this weekend. I'm able to run the VM and log-in using the standard Administrator@pega.com credentials (and NOT the password noted on the home screen; that is "install" gets me in and "Password123#" does not).
Once in, I was able to re-index everything. Although the instructions to get the node name are old/incomplete.
I am not able to use the lesson specific accounts noted in the exercise guide. It looks like the VM is incomplete. The two newest Application definitions are:
PegaRULES 07.10 Pega-RULES 8/17/2017 5:31 AM Neeraj Ramani
DMSample 01.01.01 DMSample 7/31/2017 10:54 AM Hemant Purohit
Can someone please confirm that the VM is the correct one available for download?
The Postgres database in the VM downloaded from the 7.3/7.4 LSA course strictly contains 7.3.1 GA PegaRULES, nothing more. Within the lessons in the course you can download solutions zips. The starting point is an application called "Booking POC" (Proof of Concept"). You need to download that application and install it yourself; it is not preinstalled.
Thanks, Pedel. I think the Exercise Guide should be updated. I thought I must be missing something, as it clearly states on page 4:
Note: The exercise environment provides a pre-built Pega Platform application configured specifically for this course. This allows you to focus on the key tasks of each exercise without having to complete ancillary tasks.
