I learned the hard way that shutting down the hortonworks vm 2.4 sandbox using the virtual box "Power Off" seems to corrupt the VM. What is the best procedure for shutting down the VM gently?
Thanks. This is in the right direction. Do you have a link or instructions on where I can shutdown all the services in Ambari please?
I had to log in as admin on Ambari. If there is a simple one click way to shutdown all the services. Please let me know or command line. Thanks! :)
Yes, when I said "using Ambari", I was referring to the web interface. I apologize for not being more clear.
I'm not aware of a way to stop all services from the command line using as a single command. However, you can use the Ambari API to shutdown services individually. Unfortunately, you have to call the shutdown command for each service.
Running HDP 2.5
For 1. I used @Jasper approach
For 2. I was unable to use
[root@sandbox ~]# sudo shutdown now Broadcast message from email@example.com (/dev/pts/0) at 20:39 ... The system is going down for maintenance NOW! shutdown: Unable to shutdown system
[root@sandbox ~]# sudo init 0 init: Failed to connect to socket /com/ubuntu/upstart: Connection refused
but Close > "Send the shutdown signal" worked gracefully (as far as I can tell after restarting).
Running HDP sandbox 2.6.1 on VMware.
Can't execute the shutdown commands for the docker in Step 2 via SSH, with the same error messages that @Bob Heckel is getting.
The VMware Player window is useless, since it's interacting with the host VM, not with the hosted docker container for the sandbox.
Now my sandbox appears to be corrupted again, the host VM startup process is getting stuck on starting up the docker.
I am sure there was an architectural justification to migrate to using VM + docker vs. just VM, but it's not working out very well for users.
I used to use VMWare and switched to virtualbox. By suspending, I assume you mean pausing. Yes?
