@Emre Berk AKIRMAK Heya, hoping you got this issue resolved but just in case: Is this happening before or after you put in a password? The first prompt is asking you to put in the current password, it may or may not (I forget, at this point) close your session if you get the current password wrong.

In case I'm wrong, then it looks like an issue with ShellInABox, the service that is exposing SSH on the browser. If it is kicking you off before you get a chance to put any password in, I can take a closer look.

In the meantime, if you're putting in the current password and it's still kicking you out, try SSH'ing in through a shell (or download "git bash" if you're on Windows). Let me know how it goes :)

This is a case usually when one believes he is answering the prompt correctly !!!!! Please read carefully
Example the assumption is the root password is hadoop

sandbox login :root

root@sandbox.hortonworks.com password: hadoop

You are required ..............(root enforced)

Changing your password for root ...NOTE the current

(current) UNIX password : hadoop

In the above prompt if you type something else it will immediate close connect

It works! Thanks @Eon kitex

I was trying with Unix root password... because that is what it says.. but it is expecting hadoop as password....

@Eon kitex

Can you used mixed Upper&,Lower case and number in your password, you can later change using the CLI.
