@Mosunmola In order to start Hive, you will need yarn and hdfs started first. Do not restart all. The sandbox environment is going to require a very robust computer to run the entire stack, like 32gb+ memory. That said, a 16gbs or less memory may not be enough to run multiple services depending on what else may be running on your machine. So start and stop only what you need to test, not the entire stack.
