the Sandbox in 2.5 is dockerized within a VM. You logged into a VM then you need to locate the docker container and there you will be able to login to Hive. Please review http://hortonworks.com/hadoop-tutorial/learning-the-ropes-of-the-hortonworks-sandbox/

Thanks Artem for your response.

Few days before , i could do the same command as you can see the joined screen, using the same shell.

How can I locate the docker please?

Thanks.

To access the Docker shell from the Sandbox VM, use the following: ssh -p 2222 root@localhost

Default password is "hadoop".
