default username/password for Ambari?

I also face the same issue. Try to use admin/admin and it’s not working. Try to use user/password specified during HDP Sandbox setting in Azure is also giving the same error.

I have tried to change the password using SSH but over there I am getting error message of permission denied with user name which I provided while configuring Azur portal. And not able to login using root username and password.

Please see the link that you shared http://hortonworks.com/blog/hortonworks-sandbox-with-hdp-2-3-is-now-available-on-microsoft-azure-gal...

You have to follow the steps carefully and remember passwords. Can you try to follow the guide and recreate vm?

Once its done deployoing then

1. ssh into the VM and run the following command as the root user:ambari-admin-password-reset

2. You will be prompted to enter the password. Ambari server will restart.

3. Then run command

ambari-agent restart

4. You can then go to the http://<hostname/ipaddress>:8888 which displays the splash page and click on the Ambari url. Enter the user "admin" and put the password you set previouly in step 2. You should now be able to log in as an Ambari admin.

Where are you changing the password ? Did you see the screenshot that I attached?

You must sudo as root once you are in vm
