In Azure, I ssh into my Sandbox VM but can't SETUP AMBARI ADMIN PASSWORD MANUALLY

As you can see below, I am in my Azure VM. I am trying to reset the admin password for the ambari following this link (http://hortonworks.com/hadoop-tutorial/learning-the-ropes-of-the-hortonworks-sandbox/#explore-ambari-azure)

I see that I have HDP 2.5.0. I don't see the ambari-admin-password or ambari-agent commands.

Can someone explain how I can manually reset the ambari admin password assuming that is needed to ambari dashboard on port 8080 as admin. I can successfully use the ambari dashboard as maria_dev.

thanks. - Colin

It looks like the tutorial has you ssh into port 22. However, the Azure setup page has the following:

ssh into the VM by going to http://<hostname/ipaddress>:4200 and 
log in with the credentials provided during the setup of offering.

Here is the screenshot from my setup:

You should also be able to use the web ssh client via the GUI to connect to the shell.

@Michael Young I won't claim to understand but, after adding WebSSL at port 4200 into my network security group and disconnecting from VPN (to avoid SOCKS proxy details), I was able to login as root/hadoop. i then changed the root password and am back on my feet. Thank you. I am curious where you found the detail on the need for port 4200 that you pasted. It is not contained in the Azure HDP Sandbox tutorial. Thanks again, - Colin

I found that information on the Azure Marketplace page where you deploy the Sandbox. We need to update the tutorial appropriately.
