No live data nodes in Sandbox

Rising Star

I installed Sandbox within VMWare running in Windows 10.

I noticed that Ambari dashboard reports 0 live data nodes. And this is probably why I can't write any file in HDFS.

Are data nodes not available in Sandbox upon install? Do I need to manually create them?

@Dmitry Otblesk , There is 1 datanode already installed in the Sandbox. Can you please try to start the datanode component from Ambari? Let us know about the error if you receive any.

Yes, this helped, thanks!

However I am still wondering why HDFS does not start on its own, why do I need to start it manually? When I tried to run Sandbox within Virtual Box I did not have to start it, all worked automatically

@Dmitry Otblesk - Please turn off maintenance mode for HDFS to allow it to start with other services after reboot.
