Error when checking sandbox version - Require an Selinux enabled system

New Contributor

I just installed Oracle VMWare and Horton Works. I was able to login to Ambari Sandbox. However when check sandbox -version for the status I get an error

/bin/sandbox: Requires an SELinux enabled system

Thought I might be missing some parameters. checked /etc/sysconfig/selinux

I attached the link

Want to make sure everything is okay.

I guess SELinux should be in Disabled state:


[root@sandbox ~]# sestatus
SELinux status:                 disabled


Are you logging into the sandbox using SSH port 2222 (or you are running the "sandbox -version" command outside the actual sandbox host)

If you want to find the HDP sandbox version & details then you can try this:

# ssh root@ -p 2222

[root@sandbox ~]# cat /root/

Looks like the "/bin/sandbox" command is not same asHDP sandbox
