How to use SandBox in something other than vmware player (ESXi?)

    Hi.

    I’d like to run the Sandbox on something other than a desktop system. I plan to run it on a large piece of ESXi infrastructure, giving it lots of cores and memory.

    Can somebody please let me know how I might go about making the network interfaces appear correctly and what I’d do with the OVF/OVA template once deployed?

    I tried editing the sysconfig/network scripts a little bit once in and up and running, but the little login shell kept saying there were connectivity issues, suggesting I’d done something wrong ;).

    Ideally, I’d like to have ONE physical interface to it plumbed (rather than the host only stuff) that I could http or ssh to.

    Thanks.

    Hi Jake,
    Have you thought of just installing the regular HDP distro? Do you specifically just need the capabilities of Hue which Sandbox provides? I believe there was some other posts talking about Hue potentially being incorporated to the HDP distribution in the future.

    Regards,
    Robert

    Hi,

    If you have an OpenStack cloud, you can deploy the Sandbox there. Here are instructions: http://developer.rackspace.com/blog/getting-started-with-hadoop-using-hortonworks-sandbox.html
