I would think I picked the right answer.  I did not pick any answer with SD or sundial in it but it marked me wrong about sundial.  Not so sure this question is set up right.

Level 11

2nd day in a row where I did not pick the answer it said I picked and marked it wrong!

Hey friends -  the question is configured as it was written. If there's an issue here, can someone DM me with the perceived problem?

Level 11

@yumdarling - I sent you a DM with the 2 that I think were marked wrong incorrectly.

Level 20

So far so good on this one this month!  One thing's for sure... GPS has gotten scary better with RTK.  Consumers can get centimeter level accuracy and this has be a concern for homeland security and the DoD you would think right?

Level 9

WEEK 3: DAY 14
The second link is broken (404). I think it should be
https://www.solarwinds.com/server-application-monitor/use-cases/office-365-monitoring

Level 8

Link not working for todays hint, but if you remove '%20target' from the end of it it'll get you where you need to go.

Level 9
Level 14

hmmm... 404 error on the question today

Level 10

Yes, make sure you look at the link @james.heads provided since the clue doesn't seem to give all the answers....

Level 12

@yumdarling dont forget the "_blank" tag to open in new window  🙂

 

Level 14

The Office 365 Monitoring link is broken, it should be Office 365 Monitoring. (or you could just remove the " ' target" off he end of the url).

Level 14

Man seems like there were a lot that missed Day 13 (Yesterday, March 18).  I'm nervous to submit my answer.  Is this a question where you should make assumptions or only pay attention to what the hints say on their pages?

Level 10

Today's hint:

fakeusername_0-1584623573466.png

 

Level 20

Just think anything MS Office related today applies...

Level 10

The answer is found here:  https://www.solarwinds.com/server-application-monitor/use-cases/office-365-monitoring

Confirmed with a green check mark.

Level 9

Yesterday!!! Didn't think Skype was a business Tool anymore, certainly not at our business

Didn't even see it listed, n'er mind, each to their own

 

Level 9

NTA oh NTA,

Where did the data flow

Email and SQL is all okay

But to Porn DL I say No!

I like the response when I searched for the one item in Tuesday's question:

2020-03-20_17h01_01.png

The obvious is obvious until it isn't.  But today it was.

 

Level 12

@yumdarling Wk4 Day 17 - should this be a multiple choice answer?

Community Manager
Community Manager

@gcp thanks for catching that.. yes, it's a select all that apply question. 

Level 10

WEEK 4: DAY 17 not showing up as select all that apply

Level 10

looks fixed now, thank you. USA # 1

Level 9

Over the years I've setup plenty of NetFlow,

So I am definitely someone that can say that I know.

I say it with sass, that it can be a pain in the ...butt,

But Solarwinds NTA is a star at the show!

Level 9

Predict Future Logs, just build a Time Machine, you can buy a flux capacitor online. 😂

Noooooooooooooooooooo   I missed it, and it seemed easy, but it says I got it wrong when I feel based on the answers I had all the right answers checked.   Shoot.   First miss on the new site.

Level 12

I was surprised by what was not a feature of LA. No not that one. The other one. 

Level 10

I like that new feature about predicting problems where it sends a drone with tacos and pizza before you even start troubleshooting the issue. The food arrives just as the issue starts. Well done!

Level 12

@yumdarling  Q. For Mar 26 - marked as incorrect. " Not quite - X, Y and Z and excluded"  and I selected X, Y & Z in the answer...☹️

 

 

Level 9

Mar 26: really read carefully to find the excepted products

Level 9

Also got a big X for today's question even though i answered right.

Level 11

I believe the answer is wrong today.  I selected X/Y, then it said X/Y/Z, even though one of those answers is clearly within the list...

@yumdarling 

Level 9

WPM is on both excluded and compatible list, nice one.

Level 14

I call foul too.  WPM is clearly listed as being included NOT excluded.

MVP
MVP

Same here. Foul.

Level 10

Boy, I am glad I read the blogs first! I agree that the issue is clearly with WPM (yea or nay?). Going to wait this out for clarification.

Level 10

@yumdarling Like @gcp , I am almost positive I clicked off the correct boxes and then got told those same boxes were the correct answer when it told me I was incorrect. 

Level 9

Same here, WPM part is incorrect.

Level 7

Same, got question wrong.

Chose the right answers.

Level 8

Answered the March 26th question.  Was told that I got the question wrong, but I had selected what it said was the correct answers.  Can we get this question looked at.

Level 10

I need a reset as well, @yumdarling   

 

 

Level 8

I agree with @buchagj and I experienced the same.   I selected the correct answers, submitted them, and the pop-up told me my answers were incorrect--and then it provided the correct answers--which were identical to those I submitted.

Level 8

Here too... It informed me I was wrong and told me the correct answer was what I had selected. I went back to the hint to verify that I hadn't missed anything.

Level 9

@yumdarling  Same as others above.  I need a reset for today's question. The you are incorrect response clearly lists a product that's on the compatible list. It is named in other posts. 

Thank you,

Level 9

I too am having the issue as above. I have the screenshot to that shows my answers; and they were correct. - Thank you!!

Level 14

@yumdarling There seems to be a problem with the hint.  At the top of the article it says it applies to all EXCEPT these products. One of the products listed in the compatible products list at the bottom.  I will hold off on answering until there is some clarification.

Level 9

March 26th, from the comments so far.....I seem to be in good company.

Level 10

@yumdarling I am hoping you will post some clarification here in the Discussion Forum on the WPM in or out issue. I am also holding off in answering since it is on both lists. Thanks for your time.

Level 8

Not fixed yet. should have read the comments before doing the question
