Couldn't open Ambari browser from HDP Sandbox

New Contributor

I have installed HDP sandbox, but I don't know how to lunch a browser from it without having a GUI. I tried to install X11 but have the following error : Cannot retrieve repository metadata for repository HDP-2.4 Please verify its path and try again.

This problem blocks me from learning HDP-tutorial.

Thanks to Predrag I was able to start the tutorials.

Instead of visiting localhost:8080, I visitied IPaddressOfmySanadbox:8080 and it worked.

You don't need a browser in the Sandbox, just launch a browser like Firefox from your PC, and visit http://localhost:8080

Thank you for your answer, but is there any additional step to do before visiting htto://localhost:8080. Because when login to my sandbox and then lunching the browser on the host machine and visiting the link above I got Connection failed !

Re: Couldn't open Ambari browser from HDP Sandbox

Try running /root/start_ambari.sh, check "ambari-server status" and if Ambari is running retry access from the browser.
