How to install Hortonworks Sandbox 2.5 on vmware esxi instead of vmware fusion?

New Contributor

Dear Experts,

In my organization we support only vmware esxi as the virtualization software (virtual box) is not supported. Is it possible to have the Sanbox download available for vmware esxi?

Regards,

Gaurav

@Gaurav Naik

The sandbox is for individual users to evaluate on their desktop or laptop. If you wish to ESXI, you could install HDP 2.5 as a single-node cluster. Look here: https://docs.hortonworks.com/HDPDocuments/Ambari-2.4.1.0/bk_ambari-installation/content/index.html

Start with Ambari, then single-node cluster. It is pretty straightforward and you can save this image and use it multiple times.

There is no plan to support sandbox on actual servers, just for individual users on desktop/laptop.

If this clarified/help, please vote/accept as best answer.
