Installing HDP Sandbox on Google Compute

    Hello everyone,
    I am trying to install the HDP sandbox on a google compute cluster. I went the route of installing the Virtual Box on my vm instance.
    I successfully installed the Virtual Box on my instance, but unable to proceed after that. The first step of virtual box involving starting it with a GUI and exporting the HDP file.
    Can someone throw some light on how to proceed please?

    Hi Argil,

    You need to open up virtual box, then go to File > Import Appliance then navigate to where you downloaded the sandbox.
    You dont ‘install’ sandbox per se, but more import the fully built appliance as a Virtual Machine.
