    I have successfully installed HDP 2.0 On windows. Are there tutorials other than the sandbox how to test the installation. I am new to Administrating Hadoop and cannot find a starting point. Anyone know of some basic Hadoop Hello worlds to run on HDP 2? Thanks!

    Hi Carolus,
    Here is a link that may help:

    Basically, its a smoketest that runs. Also, the usual wordcount example can be used as well.

    Kind Regards,

    We are in the same boat. Sandbox GUI and tutorials were fantastic – but we cannot find a starting point for same with HDP 2.0 on Windows. Is this release ready for non-admin staff to use for data science yet?


    Hi Dave,

    To run tests & programs against HDP on Windows, then you must use the command line.
    The Sandbox has Hue installed which is not available on Windows. Everything which Hue can do can be doe via the command line or creating your own Java programs.
