SandboxVersion: HDP 2.3.2
Hadoop stack version:Hadoop2.


Issue 1: No available when executing command yum groupinstall “Development tools“

Resolution: This occurs when you copy and pasted the command. The double quotes used are wrong. Use " instead. There run the following command with the right double quotes:

yum groupinstall "Development tools" 

The same occurs with pip install “ipython[notebook]“

Instead run

pip install "ipython[notebook]"


Issue 2: No ~/.ipython/profile_pyspark found after executing command ipython profile create pyspark


IPython was updated to 4.0.0 which uses jupyter

  1. Run jupyter notebook --generate-config
  2. Then nano /root/.jupyter/


Issue 3: - profile Error when executing "~/"



IPYTHON_OPTS="notebook" pyspark

instead of

IPYTHON_OPTS="notebook –profile pyspark" pyspark

These issues have been resolved and information updated in the latest IPython with Spark Tutorial
