Correction the above instruction was for HDF Sandbox.

So if you want to achieve the same in HDP Sandbox then please try this:

For HDP Sandbox please try this:

# ssh root@127.0.0.1 -p 2122
root@127.0.0.1's password: hadoop


Edit the script "/root/start_scripts/splash.py"

Example: Like changed the following line in "/root/start_scripts/splash.py"

    if flavor == "hdp":
        greet_win.addstr(1, 2, "HDP 2.5")


To something like

    if flavor == "hdp":
        greet_win.addstr(1, 2, "HDP 2.5 (###### Test Application ######) ")


Save the file and then Restarted HDP Sandbox.

For HDF Sandbox please try this:

If you want to customize the welcome screen then try something like this:

 # ssh root@127.0.0.1 -p 2122
root@127.0.0.1's password: hadoop

Then edit the file "/sandbox/terminal-splash.py"
For example change the line

 greet_win.addstr(1, 2, "Hortonworks Sandbox")


With something like

 greet_win.addstr(1, 2, "Hortonworks Sandbox ########## TEST APP ##########")<br>

Then restart your Sandbox.

Hi @Jay Kumar SenSharma

I can't find splash.py file in HDP 2.4, please let me know the workaround for this version.

@Mahesh Chaudhary

Are you using Correct SSH port to connect to the HDP VM (2122)?

# ssh root@127.0.0.1 -p 2122
root@127.0.0.1's password: hadoop
.
.
#### In order to find a file, please try using the "locate" command.
# yum install mlocate -y
# updatedb
# locate splash.py
