I'm trying to setup/change the admin user for Ambari in vitrualbox sandbox-hdp 2.6. I've ssh into vitrualbox found no command ambari-admin-password-reser. I've shh'd into the docker from the virualbox ssh -p 2222 root@127.0.0.1 and still no ambari-admin-password-rest ? Am I missing somethig?

hdp-select versions

2.5.0.0-1245

2.6.0.3-8

which ambari-admin-password-reset

/usr/sbin/ambari-admin-password-reset

Ok - that found it - for some reason it was not in the path and find / -name ambari-admin-password-reset did not find it.

Thank you!

just summarized my action to set password of ambari UI

Take putty of the snadbox host - & the default password of sandbox host - root/hadoop. once you are connected shell & then run this command. this reset ambari admin password and also start the required services

ambari-admin-password-reset

open sanbox host via ambari UI with ur password.
