    Hello Hortonworks Gurus,
    I installed Sandbox 2.0 on Virtualbox 4.3.6.
    I can open the address
    But when I open, I get an error :
    Bad Request – Invalid Hostname
    HTTP Error 400. The request hostname is invalid.

    I already restarted my computer. Downloaded again the image and reinstalled it . Without any result.

    Please advise , what can be done .

    Thank you,

    Hi Boris,
    Are you able to enable and access Ambari over port 8080? Can you ssh into the sandbox and run ifconfig. Once you do that, if there is an IP returned for your network, can you try that URL?
