HDP 2.6 - Initiate sandbox through browser

New Contributor

Hi ,

I'm using MAC OS Sierra.

I started HDP 2.6 sandbox using Virtual Box. I get a window which says 'To initiate Hortonworks Sandbox session please open a browser and enter this address in the browser's address field: http://127.0.0.1:8888/'

When i enter it in the browser I get an empty response. What's the work around for this? The image below shows the issue that I'm facing

We need to check if the "Port Forwarding" for the port 8888 is present or not?

Please check: https://community.hortonworks.com/articles/65914/how-to-add-ports-to-the-hdp-25-virtualbox-sandbox.h...

- We can also check if we have set the networking mode to host-only on the VirtualBox instance.

- If the port forwarding is enabled for 8888 port then we should check if by any chance firewall is not causing any issue.

- So please try to do SSH to the sandbox as following (on port 2222 only), Default password should be "hadoop"

# ssh root@127.0.0.1 -p 2222

- After doing SSH, please check if the firewall is disabled.

# service iptables status
iptables: Firewall is not running.

- Also please check if the port 8888 is opened inside the Sandbox?

# netstat -tnlpa | grep 8888
