I followed the steps in
to install the VMWare Player and open the VM HDP_2.6_1_docker_vmware_28_07_2017_15_04_27_hdp__ambari.
When I try to play the VM it seems to hang and never gets everything started up. The error message I get is "Failed to initialize policy for CPU", which is presented before the screen image below, where everything hangs. Is there a simple explanation/fix or is more information needed? I am running Win10 on an HP Spectre 360, Intel I7, 6500U CPU @2.50 GHz, 2 Cores and 4 Logical Processors with 16GB of Ram, 8GB dedicated to the VM
You might want to try the virtual box version instead, I see a lot more issues with the vmware side. The error message you are getting is related to vmware, and not to the hortonworks sandbox. You can try checking to make sure that CPU virtualization is enabled in your BIOS settings, and if not, try again.
