Welcome to the Configuring Analytics Online Course!
First off, thanks to Kelsey for helping me out and for the kind introduction!
Secondly, in the immortal words of Austin Powers, "Allow myself to introduce myself."
As Kelsey mentioned, I'm a Senior Field Service Engineer at OSIsoft having been with the company for a bit over four years now. I also have a background in Chemical Engineering with degrees from Clemson (Go Tigers!) and UT-Austin (Hook 'Em!). Along the way I also spent some time working in chemical and polymer production plants and for a semiconductor tool manufacturer. Also similar to Kelsey, I started at OSI as a CSE before moving into FS fulltime where I spend most of my time teaching internal and external classes ,leading AF Workshops, and in general, answering questions related to AF.
I love working with customers to implement their projects in AF and the addition of asset analytics a few years ago has increased the scope of problems we can address making this work that much more interesting. I look forward to answering your questions and seeing what you come up with for the class! Preferably, questions can be posted to the discussion forum for this class, but you can also email me directly if you need to share something proprietary. Please reply to this thread to introduce yourself and let us know what industry you are in and your ideas for putting asset analytics to work for you.

It looks like you're referencing the server name PISRV1 twice in the path. When you open the search for the first time in the Virtual Learning Enviornment (VLE) machines, I recommend going all the way up to the Home level as it looks like the first PISRV1 instance may be cached in the search. Starting from the top of the hierarchy resolves this though. Alternatively, you can just remove the second "PISRV1" from your root path since you are not using cell references.
I will look into resolving this in the VLE machine images as well. Thank you for pointing this out.
I activated a VLE VM like yours and ran into the same issue. I'm not sure exactly which step fixed it, but here is what I did to get it working. In PSE and DataLink, I went into the Connections dialogue and Removed the AF Server and then added it back. I was still seeing the AF Server twice in the DataLink search but once I switched to a different database, I started to only seeing the AF Server listed once and everything worked as expected. Can you give these actions a try on your system to see if they work? Please let us know if you have any further questions.
Many thanks Kelsey and Brent for your great support,
I have tried as your guide and it is working now.
