    I had sanbox installed and hive working fine for almost 3 weeks. Now all of a sudden I am getting this message
    FAILED: RuntimeException Call to sanndbox /″ failed on connection exception: connection refused”

    Please suggest what could be the reason for the error all of a sudden.

    Please restart the Sandbox VM to see if that solves the issue.

    Cheryle Custer,

    That didn resolve the issue. I just re-installed the sandbox and continuing to work.
