I am trying to set up the HDP Sandbox on Docker.
Unfortunately the import process into docker seems to hang.
I have run:
docker load -i HDP_2.6.3_docker_10_11_2017.tar
But after 2 hours this is hanging (or still running)?
How long should normally this operation take? Did anybody else encounter this issue?
I wish I could give a more definitive answer, but this depends on a number of factors including your machine's available CPU and RAM. One thing I would suggest you do ahead of time is to increase the amount of memory that you dedicate to Docker (the default is pretty low) -- it should speed up any Docker operation. See here for a how-to: https://hortonworks.com/tutorial/sandbox-deployment-and-install-guide/section/3/#configure-docker-me...
I've seen this load finish between 5min and (in an extreme case) 20-30min. If you ever find yourself throwing your hands up in frustration at Docker, you can also consider the VirtualBox version of the sandbox.
