    For the connections, take a look at https://knowledge.broadcom.com/external/article?articleId=118641

    For the amber color, that indicates a resolved connection but the Live Link is not activated. https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/it-operations-management/spectrum/10-4-2/managing-network/modeling-and-managing-your-it-infrastructure/modeling-your-network-manually/how-to-model-manually-in-the-universe-topology/add-network-devices-to-universe-topology-views/connections-pipes-between-modeled-devices/enable-or-disable-a-live-link.html

    They have alarms asserted. Tap "alarms" for the specific view, to view they.
