Your problem is resolved and here are the steps
Downloaded the images in the link H DP3.0.1 extracted successfully
Virtualbox setup ensure you enable only bridged adapter and deselect the NAT on Adapater1 gave my sandboy 10 GB plus 4 CPU's
Extraction of the HDP it really takes a while
Post extraction you are presented with this screen note the ssh IP linked to the bridge adapter IP
Opened the web host CLI using 192.168.0.103 IP in my case your could be different you will be prompted for root default password hadoop and immediately forced to change the default password to something stronger .
After successfully changing then you and now in business at the root prompt type the below
The above will reset the ambari password I went the simple way with admin/admin when you see that ambari is listening to port 8080 then you are done
Using Chrome opened the Ambari UI
Using the password set above admin/admin in my case open the Ambari web UI
