Hortonworks Sandbox Forum

Cannot go to Sandbox 2.0 introduction page

  • #49599

    I started up the Sandbox 2.0 VM on a vSphere 5.0 cluster. Dell Intel boxes running ESXi 5.0.

    I can log into the VM as root, but I get no response trying to browse to the intro page (http://<ip&gt;). I also cannot ping the machine.

    Anybody know what might be going on?

    Hi Tim,
    What URL are you trying to access and what are you trying to ping?


    Tim Wise

    Hey, Ian.

    For the intro page url, I’m just using the IP address we gave to the sandbox VM and entering that in a browser on my laptop:

    To ping the machine, I’m just using the ping command from my laptop: ping I’m looking into firewall issues to see if that’s why I cannot ping the machine.

    We’re assigning an IP from a pool we use for VMs on our vSphere cluster. Are there any expectations about the sandbox IP address?


    Tim Wise

    Got it working. We had setup the VM with a static IP. Instead, we moved the VM into a network that has a DHCP server.

    Now I can get to the home page.

    But clicking on Go to Sandbox doesn’t work. Look like its using a fix ( I can go to the sandbox by entering the correct IP and port 8000.

    On to the tutorials.
