Unable to find/start the Sandbox Tools

Contributor

Installed Hortonworks with HDP 2.4 into Virtualbox with host OS of Windows 7. All installed fine. The VM starts up with no errors. When I go to http://127.0.0.1 I get the Sandbox splash screen, but no place to start the tutorials. I saw on the Hortonworks videos a "Start Tutorials" button that takes you to a web page where the frame on the left is the tutorial and the frame on the right is the Sandbox tools. If I go to http://127.0.0.1/frames.html I get the page with the tutorial on the left, but the right side is blank where the Sandbox tools are supposed to be.

OK. The key was I was expecting to see the HUE screen, but that does not exists. Yes I can get to Ambari, so I would assume all is up and running as expected.

Hadoop in general can be an overwhelming ecosystem to start in. I will just run through all the tutorials and start reading books.

Thanks to everyone who responded.

Can you try opening the below?

http://127.0.0.1/index.html?popup=1

There are also tutorials on the hortonworks website: http://hortonworks.com/tutorials/

It spins for a while and then I get "This webpage is not available".

hmm it seems to work on this end. Maybe try restarting the VM?

Contributor

i have restarted the VM multiple times with no effect. I even reimported the OVA file into a new VM but the new VM has the same problem.

@Michael Rife

Run a checksum against the file you might have a corrupt file.

Contributor

I redownloaded the VirtualBox and the OVA file is identical as my previous version.

Where is the correct checksum for the VirtualBox VM OVA file published?

@Michael Rife try going to http://127.0.0.1:8888/. The screen should look like this. As long as HDP is up and running you can run any of the tutorials. You don't have to access them through the splash screen.

@Scott Shaw I can get to the splash screen and all displays. I cannot get to the page that displays the Hadoop tools, the right side of the image below. HTTP://127.0.0.1/index.html only gives me the left frame. HTTP://127.0.0.1/index.html?popup=1 and popup=2 both now only display the left frame. There is no right frame. Was access to tools in a page like the right side of below removed from the Sandbox 2.4?

Sorry to be a pain, but all the Hortonworks Sandbox Youtube videos of previous versions show the ability access the Hadoop tools in this web page.

I have tried Chrome, Firefox, and IE. All do the same.

@Michael Rife can you please provide the link to the Sandbox youtube videos? The right hand side above is HUE, which is installed but not enabled with the HDP 2.4 sandbox. If you are looking for Pig, Hive, HDFS UI/tools, ... please explore the Ambari views. You can learn the basics of these Ambari Views in the Hello HDP tutorial.

@Michael Rife Can you please try going to localhost:8080 does it bring up Ambari?

> Hadoop in general can be an overwhelming ecosystem to start in. I will just run through all the tutorials and start reading books.

Completely understand. My I suggests the following path through a few key tutorials:

1) Learning the Ropes

Get familiar with the sandbox

2) Hello HDP

Get familiar with HDP and key apache technologies (hadoop, hdfs, hive, spark, pig, zeppelin)

3) Sentiment Analysis tutorial

Learn about HDF and go through a use case using twitter data and get introduced to (NiFi, HBase, Hive, Solr)

4) IoT tutorial

This will introduce you to streaming with Storm, Kafka and more Hive & Hbase.

These four tutorials should give you a good high level intro to many of they key technologies. After that you can do further deep dive into specific tutorials to learn more.

Hi @Michael Rife I am facing the same issue that Hue page never loads, were you able to resolve it, if yes please guide. thanks

Contributor

Hue is not included with the current version of the sandbox. All activities are done either through Ambari or from the OS prompt. If you want to use Hue, you would have to "side load" it onto your sandbox. I am sure there are instructions as to how to do that out on the Internet. I did not do that. We want to stay "stock" Hortonworks.
