@Kirk Haslbeck

What kind of error do you see in the ambari-server.log / ambari-server.out ?

Also just before the error we see "About to start PostgresSQL" so can you please check if the Postgres successfully started or if the Postgres logs shows any error?

Connection refused error. I edited my /etc/hosts file but it already had a mapping for 127 -> sandbox

if this is sandbox, make sure that port is allowed under network/advanced/port forwarding.

try

sudo ambari-server stop

sudo ambari-server start

Cleanly shutdown and halt the box and reboot your machine.

@Kirk Haslbeck What worked for me was restarting the ambari-server and ambari agent.

Thanks for the suggestions. I tried opening the port and restarting both ambari-server and agent as well as full system reboots. Ultimately I ended up just deleting the Virtual box instance and re-importing. So far so good but I chose not to reset the ambari password this time.

@Kirk Haslbeck we were not able to reproduce this. We made a refresh to the SB to address a couple of other issues. Could you download the latest SB and give it a try again?

I think that's a good idea as I did download an early one and had issues then got a better one later.
