Unable to launch url for Pega Marketing Enablement 7.13 ML9 exercise system after starting VM
Issue 1: Before importing the exercise system VM, verify the Network adapter settings of the VirtualBox (File -> Preferences -> Network). The IP addresses in the Adapter and DHCP server tabs of the host-only entry should match the IP addresses mentioned in the Exercise System Quick Start Guide.
Issue 2: Do not click New and try to add a new virtual machine. Just select Add from the Machine menu and select the shipped *.vbox file. If you create a new machine, it will overide all the settings needed to run the exercise system. Also, this can hide many other underlying issues with the exercise system set-up.
Issue 3: If you encounter an error message related to the vitualization when trying to start the virtual machine, then address this issue first. Shutdown the machine, start again and accesss the BIOS settings, enable the virtualization option. The method to access BIOS and the steps to change virtualization settings will be different for different PC manufacturer and model. Refer relevent source that is application for your machine.
I have tried all of the above and went thru most of the postings on this forum related to this but still am having issues after the VM is up and I can't get to the URL: http://prpc.local:8080 and tried http://192.168.56.101:8080 as indicated in the VM but still browser doesn't reach there. Browser error:
The prpc.local page isn’t working
prpc.local didn’t send any data.
What am I missing or incorrectly configured?

I have tried to implement steps outlined from all of the three articles/questions but I am still not getting to the prpc.local:8080. I have done uninstall/reinstall, removed from VirtualBox and by double clicking also tried adding. I have tried almost all the approaches that are available to add the VM image. I am using Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5. I am using the following Virtual Box: VirtualBox Graphical User Interface, Version 5.0.26 r108824. Can we do a screen share?
Can you please share more details on the issue you are facing. Which Pega Academy course (and exercise system) are you referring to? Do you see any error message when you try to start the virtual machine?
Please note that the new version of Pega Marketing and Customer Decision Hub courses (<course name>* (7.21)) use a new exercise system that does not need two Network adapters anymore. Only the Host-only Adapter (vboxnet0 on Mac) will be enough.
Yes and yes. Just to be sure, I deleted and re-installed virtual box, re-downloaded and extracted the VM using Keka, verified the network setting in vbox before adding the vm and also removed the 70-persistent-net.rules.
I am sorry. I was using the latest version 7.2.1. When i start the VM i am able to get the screen in VM giving http://192.168.56.111/. I tried to launch the URL in the browser. I am not getting any response and after some time i am getting proxy error.
Please help me out. I have done more than 5 times all the configuration changes and remove and deployed the vm again. But still not able to resolve the issue.
