I am enrolled into "Elasticsearch Engineer 1 (On-Demand)" via my company account. Now there are several problems with the Strigo environment and a link to the dataset material ZIP is not provided - so I am looking for support.
Let's start with Strigo:
- At the moment, the entire lab environment doesn't start anymore. I am trying on macOS with Firefox 80.0.1 (all plugins disabled), as well as Chrome 85.0.4183.102. It now shows:
"Something went wrong. We have encountered a technical issue while setting up your lab. Please contact your event host to resolve this issue."
Before that it spins the "Preparing machine" and finishes with the error message. I cannot reset it myself apparently. So that is stuck.
- The very first time it ran fine, and I could ssh into the other servers. Then it stopped doing anything on the ssh connections and just didn't connect to server 1/2/3, just not returning to the console after the command (maybe a timeout?). I tried removing the already accepted ssh keys in .ssh, but that didn't change anything. I can try to ping the ips behind the server names, but they don't reply any pongs (but that might be firewall related).
So I turned to the documentation on the virtual server, specifically the point:
- "Running labs on your local machine". Here it says: "The ZIP file that you can download from the Elastic training portal contains the lab instructions in the form of HTML files, as well as the datasets. You can use these to recreate the lab environment on your own machine. This page is provided to help you get the Elastic Stack up and running locally.".
Specifically it speaks about a blogs.csv, a blogs_csv.conf and a elastic_blog_curated_access_logs.tar.
I saw a a dataset ZIP file on server1 when I could do an initial connection into server1 (back when the console worked once). All I want to do is replicate the elastic config on my own machine, since Strigo is totally unreliable.
Now when I look into the course outline, there is no ZIP file to download.
So 2 Questions:
1 - Where is the ZIP with the datasets?
2 - If that cannot be provided, can someone fix this broken Strigo machine?
I have to say I am a bit perplexed about the instability of that setup with Strigo. I sure hope the Exam works better than the current preparation course.
