Hortonworks Sandbox Forum

how to access ambari within hdp sandbox 2.1

    the about screen tells me that ambri is enabled!

    I connect to the sandbox (virtualbox, assigned 6gb ram) from my host (win 8.1) using chrome (latest stable version) using the, but I atually do not know how to connect to ambari.

    Also a network connection “host only adapter” is successful configured, checked by accessing hive from an application using odbc.I’m also able to import data from a sql server into hive using sqoop. This makes me think, there is no connection problem.

    what I’m trying to finally achieve is to change the hive execution engine to tez permanently without changing it for each session. I read somewhere that this can be done using ambari, but how do I connect?

    Any hint
    ip and port, but also
    a special user/pwd
    is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks – Tom

    Finally it was easy, just using the eth1 ip and the 8080 port. Now I’m trying to change the setting for the hive execution engine
