Deployment Monitor Not Back Filling Data

I need to use the Deployment Monitor in Splunk 4.2.x to see what my usage info looks like historically. However when I go into DM (after enabling it), there is no data in the dashboard. So I go to the Backfill Data tab and tell it to Backfill Summary Indexes. I let that run overnight. This morning my DM Dashboard is still empty. I don't see anything obvious in the logs....what am I doing wrong? I'd really like this feature to work.

Edit: Actually when I go to the License Usage tab I do get this:

The Splunk Deployment Monitor that ships with 4.3 has a "add backfill jobs" user interface that makes adding backfill that much easier. A forthcoming version that will be uploaded to Splunkbase soon will also allow you visibility into the progress of the backill jobs.

OK, I've updated to 4.3. It still does the same thing when I go to "License Usage". If I try to backfill the data on the "Backfill Data" tab it won't add the job to the staged jobs. I click on "Add Jobs" and nothing happens. No errors....nothing.

So one solution would be to update to 4.3? Hmm....I need to do that anyway.
