@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
firstname.lastname@example.org 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

Actually I get logged out after I type new password.

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....

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

You can as well try this hack as you have completely failed to login.You can also manually edit
/etc/shadow: (Create a backup copy. Be sure that you can log even if you mess up, for example from a rescue system.) Search for "root". Typically, the root entry looks similar to
There, delete the second field (everything between the first and second colon):
Save the file, and try logging in as root. It should skip the password prompt. (Like
passwd -d, this is a "no password" solution. If you are really looking for a "blank password", that is "ask for a password, but accept if the user just presses Enter", look at the manpage of
mkpasswd, and use
mkpasswd to create the second field for the /etc/shadow.)
Else download a new sandbox and try it won't cost you a thing so you can proceed with your tutorials
Please let me know

The first one is not possible because I am not able to login into system. May be I need to switch to console which is not possible because Hortonworks VM never loads completely. It is stuck on waiting for something to happen.

@Eon kitex enter hadoop again after "Unix password" , then you will be prompted to enter "New password"
