How do I find my user name and password from the download of Hortonworks Sandbox?

New Contributor

I am trying to login in as root through Putty, but I do not the password I used to download Sandbox, nor the user name.

SSH password will be "hadoop". The SSH port 2222 is designed to connect to the actual HDP container (which is dockerized)

# ssh root@127.0.0.1 -p 2222
Enter Password: hadoop

.

If you want to do SSH login to the Sandbox using web browser then you can also use the link:

http://locahost:4200

Enter Password: hadoop

.
