HDP 2.6.4 sandbox not starting on VirtualBox 5.2.6

New Contributor

I've been trying to get this set up for a while to no avail. The boot process seems to go fine, with no errors except for one after "waiting for server start" which exits with error code 1: reason "server is still not listening on port 8080 after 50 seconds". Though another post said that this isn't necessarily an issue. After that it continues to "Waiting for ambari services to start" and never progresses past that (see attached screenshot)

I have tried connecting to localhost:8888, 4200, and 8080. All of those refuse to connect.

From other questions, and responses, I've made sure that I have more than 8 GB allocated to the VM, I've verified the checksum, and I've re-imported the .ova a few times. I am running on Windows7.

Any help appreciated.

Hello, all. I solved the problem from my end. I had a VPN that was conflicting with the networking that VB tries to set up. Please be sure to turn off your VPN!

@Ian Shrum Sorry to hear the HDP 2.6.4 sandbox does not start for you.

I'm hoping @glupu can provide suggestions on how to diagnose your issue.

I was successful deploying HDP 2.6.4 using VirtualBox 5.2.6 for Windows 10. It took about 5 minutes for Ports 8888, 4200 and 8080 to open and connect.

Try connecting via SSH to the host machine ( ssh root@localhost -p2122 root/hadoop ) and then running docker ps to check if the docker container has been started. If so, from there login to the docker container ( ssh root@localhost -p2222 root/hadoop ) and run a ps ax command to check what processes are started.

It's very strange that not even shellinabox is started ( port 4200 ), we haven't seen this behavior before.

I downloaded VMware and the appropriate HDP 2.6.4 image. Now I can ssh in through git bash. shellinabox and ambari are still refusing to connect though..

ps ax yielded the following:psax.jpg

I too am facing the same issue

Thank you for the links, but I have already reviewed that material extensively and it did not help me. Which is why I am here.

I have similar problem, but difference is that I am running on sandbox on docker and final get through the start up. The process 'Waiting for ambari services to start...' took me about 25 minutes. Is it normal? I have set up enough memory (12GB) on my docker, so I don't think it is memory issue.

Hello everyone. I am happy to see this article which is exactly the problem I am having trying to bring new sandbox 2.6.4 up. Things were alright with 2.6.1.
Looking forward for the new update of this post.
Thanks.

I have same issue.

@Valdecir Froes Could you please tell were you able to get it to work on mac or windows. I have tried the same steps but it didnt work for me on mac :(. Could you please also tell if your firewall is ON/OFF. In some another community post someone solved it by toggling firewall. Appreciate your response!!!

@Muft Ram

Hi. To be honest it worked after several attempting.
Firewall is enabled. Hpd 2.6.4 and virtualbox 5.1.
Thanks.

Can you share the screenshot of turning it off. What is your host OS?

New Contributor

Hi guys.
What happened to me was this. When I got message of waiting ambari agent to connect I used utl http://127.0.0.1:8080/#/login instead localhost. This is how I ended up successfully connecting to ambari after several times of frustration.
I am on Windows 7 64-bit by the way.
I realised configuration changes when you shutdown vm as an example things were working fine with Zeppelin but after a shutdown serves are not coming up. I am checking some posts in this forum.

Hi All,

I am also facing the same issue while configuring HDP 2.6.4 on VM 5.2.6.

I am using Windows 10 as Host OS on 16 GB RAM allocated 12 GBs for VM.

It says "Waiting for ambari services to start" and waits for 30 minutes and moves to next step without OK.

After 30 minutes it shows the Login details in the screen.

However I have tried connecting to localhost:8888, 4200, and 8080. All of those refuse to connect.

Is it a Known Bug in HDP? Any solution suggested by Hortonworks? Can someone please guide.

Hi everyone.
I had lots of problems setting this vm up until I threw current one away and started a brand new one. From that time on it I only resume vm(pause + save vm status) before shutting computer down.

Now I have time to go through all sandbox steps without stopping and debugging issues.
Thanks

Val
