Which Sandbox Are you using? (HDP / HDF). What is the version of your Sandbox ?

If you want to use 3.x series of Sandbox with kafka the i think preferred will be the following sandbox:

For HDF Sandbox 3.1 provided components please refer to:
https://hortonworks.com/tutorial/hortonworks-sandbox-guide/section/2/#services-started-automatically

.

For HDP Sandbox 3 Provided Service List you can refer to:

https://hortonworks.com/tutorial/hortonworks-sandbox-guide/section/1/#hdp-services-started-automatic...

.

Kafka Service in not started automatically.

Can you please share the screenshot where you do not see "Kafka" service in Ambari UI ?

Do you see Kafka Directory inside the following folder when you SSH to the Sandbox using SSH port 2222 or using web client: http://localhost:4200

# ls -l /etc/kafka/conf

In ambari UI when you click on the "Add Service" button then in the next page do you see "Kafka" service is checked?

Hi Jay, I never expected you to answer that fast! Thanks!

sandbox version: HDP 3.0

What I am trying to deploy: https://resources.zaloni.com/blog/kafka-in-action-7-steps-to-real-time-streaming-from-rdbms-to-hadoo...

I can see that kafka is there, up and running in the GUI, but when I try to login with root user on PUTTY I can't see anything.

I already tried to login as maria_dev on putty but it doesn't work.

My bad! I tried to login with port 2222 and I can see all the folders now.

why I can't see the same things on port 22? Thank you again, my friend

The Sandbox is a docker container runs inside the VM.

So if you want to login to login to the VM where the Docker container is started then you will need to use the SSH Port 2122

But if you want to actually login to the Sandbox Docker container where the HDP components/services are present then you will need to do SSH on port 2222

.

You will find the Sandbox Port mapping info here: https://hortonworks.com/tutorial/hortonworks-sandbox-guide/section/3/
