    Hi All,

    The port 8888 supposed to display a welcome screen as described in the instructions manual. However, i see a different screen with port 8888. The screen name is ‘HDP 2.1 Technical Preview’ with the following sub headings.
    1. Get started with Hadoop
    2.Try New Features
    3. Dive right in

    All the above sections are connected to Hortonworks website.

    My VirtualBox is adapter is set to NAT. I would have attached a screenshot if that option is available here.

    Pls help me.

Instead, I had to use the IP address assigned to my VM (you see it when you first startup the VM, otherwise you can run ifconfig on the VM to find out the IP address. Running that IP address on port 8888 shows the page you’re referring to, and running it on port 8000 shows the sandbox UI.



    Hi Satish,

    On the home screen, on the right hand side there should be a URL like, This should take you to the sandbox UI.
    Let me know if this helps.
