If this is the HDP sandbox, root password is hadoop.

But if you installed HDP via IaaS on Azure, the root password is as you defined it in Azure (if you chose the password, non-ssh option). That is also assuming you defined the 'root' account as the password user.

The other option in Azure is use ssh, and thereby you will need to download the pem file, to access the host.

Heya, you mentioned deploying on Azure, but are SSH'ing into localhost? Try following this and see if it helps: https://hortonworks.com/hadoop-tutorial/port-forwarding-azure-sandbox/

@Adedayo Adekeye

Do you already have an active connection to Azure open? Sounds like the ports are already bounded as they should be from another place. Check for active SSH connections, or sandboxes actively running on Virtualbox/Docker.

"~/.ssh/config" E212: Can't open file for writing

Re: what is the root password for ssh root@localhost -p 2222 HDP 2.5

@Adedayo Adekeye

Have you tried writing to that file as superuser? E.g. "sudo vi ~/.ssh/config" ?

@Edgar Orendain. yes the same error message.

Re: what is the root password for ssh root@localhost -p 2222 HDP 2.5

@Adedayo Adekeye

I'd be sure that the file isn't currently open or used anywhere. You mentioned before that you were able to get this file created and run the suggested SSH command, so something may have happened between then and now that's stopping you from making changes to this file.
