Sandbox on Vritual box

Explorer

72399-instaling1.jpg

I am instaling VirtualBox version of sandbox: Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®) 2.6.4 on Hortonworks Sandbox

I have download a file and initialize VirtualBox, the instalation seems fine, but when it got to point "Waiting for ambari services to start"(see image 1) it would take 10 minutes and after that it would just go to black screen.
So I am not able to log in into Ambari at all. I tried different things, like checking if the port forwarding is set up in VB, tried to install it all over again few times, noting helped so far.

Any help?

Thank you!

Well I found a solution, took me a lot of time.

Figured that some application was using port 8080 by:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>netstat -anob | findstr "8080"
  TCP    0.0.0.0:8080           0.0.0.0:0              LISTENING       4700
  TCP    127.0.0.1:8080         127.0.0.1:49327        TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    127.0.0.1:8080         127.0.0.1:49328        TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    127.0.0.1:8080         127.0.0.1:49329        TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    127.0.0.1:8080         127.0.0.1:49399        TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    [::]:8080              [::]:0                 LISTENING       4700
  TCP    [::1]:8080             [::1]:65314            TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    [::1]:8080             [::1]:65315            TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    [::1]:8080             [::1]:65316            TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    [::1]:8080             [::1]:65343            TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    [::1]:8080             [::1]:65344            TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    [::1]:8080             [::1]:65391            TIME_WAIT       0
  TCP    [::1]:8080             [::1]:65392            TIME_WAIT       0

So I kill that application with PID 4700:

C:\WINDOWS\system32>taskkill /PID 4700 /F
SUCCESS: The process with PID 4700 has been terminated.

Start VM from virtualbox again and I am happy and Ambari is up and running!

Cheers.

At this point (based on the screenshot) you should be able to access the Terminal or web terminal to check the ambari server logs.

Please try to open the URL in your browser : http://localhost:4200. (username: root, password: hadoop)

Or try using the terminal to access the Sandbox: (port must be 2222)

# ssh root@127.0.0.1 -p 2222
Enter Password: hadoop

.

Then check the log of ambari to see if there are any issues.

Normally due to some resource issues it takes longer time to start. So better to kill some of the components like Zeppelin / Spark if you are not using them and put them in maintenance mode for next time.

Hi @Jay Kumar SenSharma
thank you for your answer, i runned:

[root@sandbox-hdp ~]# ambari-server status                                                                                                                 
Using python  /usr/bin/python                                                                                                                              
Ambari-server status                                                                                                                                       
Ambari Server running                                                                                                                                      
Found Ambari Server PID: 483 at: /var/run/ambari-server/ambari-server.pid     

So it seems that server is on, but if I try to connect to http://localhost:8080/ I got log in screen but It is not working for any credantial, like raj_ops or so.

Any further help? How to kill Zeppelin or Spark?

log:

72402-3.jpg

even:

72403-4.jpg

But i still cant log in into localhost:8080, with any pswd.
