Trying to login from putty and when I use the root and password of hadoop it does not work. Running HDP 2.4 sandbox on Azure and when I used Putto to host:4200, and try to login in as root, the password "hadoop" does not work.

@Donna Suddeth it is the password you set during the launch of the vm.

Neither the root/password suggested in the screen, nor the User/password combination when the VM is created in Azure works with either PuTTY or the browser based shell. I have tried all combinations, even to the extent of creating a new VM. The port or access method is immaterial, it simply does not work.

I have exactly the same problem deploy a VM on Azure. The root password does not work for either "hadoop" or the password configured when the VM is created. I can logon to the SSH session in PuTTY using the user/password configured during the VM spin-up. This does NOT have the admin rights needed to run the tutorials. The Ambari user/password combination of "admin"/"admin" does not work either. I have tried the suggestions but nothing works.
