I have installed Hadoop Sandbox HDP 2.5 on Oracle VritualBox 5.1.20 (Window 8.1 on a HP Envy Desktop i7 Core 12GB RAM)

Installation went smoothly and now it boots up and I can login into the root account.

As instructed by tutorial I have added the following the "hosts" file


But now I cannot open or in Chrom or IE or FireFox.

I can ping in Windows Command screen and also in Hadoop Sandbox screen,

but they cannot pint

I have tried Settings > Network under both NAT and Host-only Adapter but did not fix it.

I also cannot use netstat command in Sandbox as it does not recognize it.

Any help is appreciated.

That is odd. I don't know much about this, but I wonder if your sandbox booted in the wrong mode. Netstat should be in /bin/netstat. When I check the process listening on 8888, I see this running

root 3477 0 0 May02 ? 00:00:02 /usr/lib/tutorials/.env/bin/python /usr/lib/tutorials/ run_gunicorn 0:8888

So, try this:

/sbin/service tutorials status

HI, @james.jones

As you suggested I tried /sbin/service tutorial status and it responded:

Redirecting to /bin/systemctl status tutorials.service

Unit tutorials.service could not be found

By the way, the Sandbox come with three options for booting and I have tried your command under all 3 and got the same result.


I have the same problem
