Error Connecting through Host

  • #44876

    Hi all,
    I’ve imported the Hortonworks Hadoop Sandbox appliance into Oracle Virtualbox. It boots fine, and I can get to the home splash page from my host firefox browser without any problems at However, when I click on Goto Sandbox button, I get a Page Not Found 404 error. Samething happens if I click on Tutorials, it loads tutorials on left side but I get a Page not Found 404 Error on the right pane.
    To test the VM, I installed KDE and the Hadoop works fine locally on the VM.
    Any thoughts?

    I got it working after spending almost over half a day on it. Here is what I did to get it going:
    1. Removed the VM from Virtualbox Manager

    3. Bumped up the RAM to 4096MB
    4. Added another Network Adapter as Bridged
    5. Booted the virtual machine
    6. Logged in as root/hadoop
    7. Did #ifconfig and noted down the IP Address for the eth1 adapter that was (
    8. Launched Firefox browser and entered and got the Splash Home Page
    9. Clicked on [ GO TO SANDBOX ] button and viola It worked like a charm

    Lesson Learned: Add a Bridged adapter and don’t use instead use the eth1 adapter IP-Address:8888



    …and it runs on Microsoft IE10 verified/validated.
