1. Verify the MDM hub is accessible. Also, verify the connection to the process server from MDM hub -> Utilities -> Process Server

2. Verify Elastic Search server is working fine

3. If the above two steps look good then make sure the Elastic Search is properly configured in the Provisioning tool.

The location is : Provisioning Tool -> Configuration -> Infrastructure Settings  -> ESCluster

Here make sure the server name is properly configured for Elastic Search

Root cause:

The error 'SIP-52054: Failed to create collection name for orsId ' normally occurs when the Elastic Search server tries to make a connection to the MDM hub. If there is a mismatch in server ion in the Provisioning tool then we get this error.
