HDP 2.64 VMWare Sandbox "Waiting for Ambari Agent to connect"


I downloaded the latest version of the HDP Sandbox last night, version 2.6.4, for VMWare. When I started it up it gets stuck at "Waiting for Ambari Agent to connect." How can I get this to start, or do I have to wait for a fix release?


Any thoughts @glupu?

@Wayne Deleersnyder in order for me to provide assistance I'm going to need more information. This isn't a bug we have run into and can't really replicate right now. A couple of questions:

1. Do you have the necessary 8GB of RAM needed by the box?

2. Did you try using virtualbox as well to see if you could replicate the issue?

The same issue on my side. Is there something we can do?

@Wayne Deleersnyder @Georgi Kovachev , We tried deploying HDP Sandbox 2.6.4 on VMWare Fusion and it succeeded without any issues.

Are you using VMware workstation or VMWare Fusion ?

Also if you could give more details on the RAM settings as @glupu has mentioned , it would be really helpful.
