Unable to launch sandbox 2.5

avatar

I get stuck when i launch HortonWorks Inside VirtualBox. the host is a CentOS 7 system. I installed the 5.1.6 virtualbox version. execution stop and block at the point: Starting SandboxContainer.

I have tried VM Ware as well but it is also showing the same behavior.

I am running Windows8 with 8Gb of RAM. For the VM i reduced the allocated 8Gb RAM to 6Gb as wel

The base memory requirement for sandbox 2.5 is 8 GB ! but all the same at least it should fire up but perform badly. Can you attach a screenshot.

What is the sandbox setup like ? You will net to tweak the network check the attached screenshot from my 2.5 Sandbox

Hope that helps

I tried to switch the Network Adapters but it didn't work. It appears that the vboxadd-service is failing to start, i have attached the snapshothdp-failure.jpg

I think if you designate more RAM to the guest than the host it may cause it to crash. try it with 4GB of RAM

I have tried various comibnations from 2Gb till 6Gb but none worked 😞

I think i run into the same problem. How long did it take for your Sandbox to fully loaded?
