    Hi Amitabha,
    The filebrowser is controlled in the following setting in /etc/hue/conf/hue.ini. Are you able to access the other portions of Hue?

    [[[default]]]
    # Enter the filesystem uri
    fs_defaultfs=hdfs://sandbox.hortonworks.com:8020

    # Use WebHdfs/HttpFs as the communication mechanism. To fallback to
    # using the Thrift plugin (used in Hue 1.x), this must be uncommented
    # and explicitly set to the empty value.
    webhdfs_url=http://sandbox.hortonworks.com:50070/webhdfs/v1/

    I found the solution after some trial error, googling!
    Sharing the solution to save time for others.

    For each user there needs to be a directory present on the HDFS under /user/<userName> and this directory needs to have proper access setup.

    Regards,
    Arpan
