Hortonworks Sandbox Forum

404 when accessing the tutorials

    Here is what I did:

    1. Download the Sandbox (I tried both 1.3 and 2.0)
    2. Import it into VirtualBox 4.3
    3. Increase the virtual machine memory to 3GB
    4. Leave the network to NAT
    5. Start the virtual machine
    6. Access http://localhost:8888 and it is good.
    7. Click the ‘Start Tutorials’ green button and the next page will show the left frame with tutorial content but the right frame is ‘404 Not Found’.

    Any idea? Do I need to start some other process?

    The Sandbox on boot tries to update tutorial content from GitHub. Can you please try shutting down the VM, turning off your network connection and then boot up the Sandbox to see if that solves the issue/

    I tried the following but it did not work.

    1. shutdown the vm
    2. pull the network plug, disable wifi
    3. start the vm
    4. access the tutorial page, same result: 404 not found in both IE and Chrome.

    Any other thought?

    Thank you for trying the steps suggested. I’m sorry they did not solve the problem. Can you please download a new copy of the Sandbox and try again? Perhaps the Sandbox was corrupted on download?
