    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.

    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.
