Can you check if the HUE process is running using below commands -

1. Check hue service status using below command -

[root@sandbox ~]# /etc/init.d/hue status
supervisor (pid  5288) is running...
[root@sandbox ~]# 

2.Can you check if the HUE process is running using below commands -

$ netstat -taupen |grep 8000

[root@sandbox ~]# netstat -taupen |grep 8000
tcp        0      0      *                   LISTEN      1003       35244      5297/python2.6      

Get the PID from above command, in my case its 5297 -

DO ps on the PID -

[root@sandbox ~]# ps -aef |grep 5297
hue       5297  5288  0 May23 ?        00:01:55 python2.6 /usr/lib/hue/build/env/bin/hue runspawningserver

Make sure the process is running.

2. Login to sandbox cli and try telnet o the hue port - It should display output as shown below -

[root@sandbox ~]# telnet localhost 8000
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.

You might need to install telnet package for this - "yum install -y telnet"

i did as told... but still not possible... the page cannot be accessed.

2. Make sure the process is stopped in #ps -aef |grep hue

3. /etc/init.d/hue start

Pls send this output also.

If you are unable to access Hue web UI and using HDP 2.4 or higher the below steps might help

1. Shut down your VM.

2. Go to your VM Settings->Network->Adapter 2 and check 'Enable Network Adapter' & Attached to: Bridged Adapter, Name: <wireless adapter>

3. Click Ok and start your VM

4. Start hue as stated above and check your ethernet address using 'ifconfig' command. Should be something like

5. Hue Interface should be accessible at ethernet_address:8000
