unable to login in ambari

After i used the ip address and the port number following the hortonworks tutorial which brought me to hortonworks site i am not able to login into ambari using admin and admin as both username and password.


@Adedayo Adekeye

What is the Ambari version? Is it showing Ambari login page?

The attached file is the screen shot to the ambari site. thanks


@Adedayo Adekeye

Couple of things to check

1. Can you check if your iptables are running ? if so stop by running the command "service iptables stop"

2. is service is listening on 8080 port? check by running "nestat -anlp | grep 8080"

3. check /var/log/ambari-server/ambari-server.log for error messages

am not running this directly on my physical machine and using the virtual machine on azure

even on VM you can check those things.

@Adedayo Adekeye

first get the SSH access to the machine and try it out.

how can i get this instruction done on azure virtual machine because am completely new to this. thanks

@Adedayo Adekeye,

You can log into ambari as maria_dev with password maria_dev. Much of what you will do in the tutorials will use this login. The admin password has to be set by logging in to the shell as root and running /usr/sbin/ambari-admin-password-reset. You should have set the root password or key when you created the VM in azure.
