Can you give us more details, how much data are we talking about. Is that in Hive, Files, etc..

If it is a small set of data, You can always copy from HDFS to local and copy back to the new sandbox use hadoop fs commands Or using the Hadoop Ambari HDFS and Hive views.

If you have terabytes of data ( which i dont think on a sandbox), then distcp can be used, but i have not tried this on 2 sand boxes running at the same time.
