Hello,

LEARNING THE ROPES OF THE HORTONWORKS SANDBOX mentions steps for WIndows 7..is it applicable to any Windows system? or just Windows 7 and ignore the steps if you have higher versions of Windows?

For instance:

PRE-REQUISITES

  • Downloaded and Installed Hortonworks Sandbox
  • Allow yourself around one hour to complete this tutorial
  • If on mac or linux, added sandbox.hortonworks.com to your /private/etc/hosts file
  • If on windows 7, added sandbox.hortonworks.com to your /c/Windows/System32/Drivers/etc/hosts file

Regards

Preetha

Any Windows 7.x should be fine. That file has been the same for many different generations of Windows.

Thanks. I agree the folders mentioned have been on Windows for generations.May be my question was wrong. I meant to ask are these steps required only if you are on Windows 7 and not on Windows 10. Not sure why they specified WIndows 7 and not just Windows OS.

Thank You
