It depends on the version the of the Sandbox passwords have changed a couple of times!

Sorry for missing out on that detail. My sandbox version is: HDP 2.3.2. I remember resetting the password the first time but haven't used it since then and now I can't login as I don't remember the pwd.

Geoffrey,

I have tried and it doesn't work. After the first login, the sandbox requests for a password change which I did long ago and now I don't remember the changed password. Is there a way I can recover or reset this?

If it allows you to lo

Log on as root at the terminal prompt.

# username root 
passwd hadoop 
Changing password for root 
Enter the current root password. ... 
Then type your new password 
re-type new password 

The you will see a prompt password successfully change !!! I always create a second account with id 0
