I have the same problem with the V2.2 Preview Sandbox on Windows 8 using VMWare Player (Free) V7.0.0 . I can log into the VM no problem, I can ssh into the VM and run Hive no problem, but cannot get into the browser-based UI at http://192.168.18:8000, which is the link provided.
I also tried connecting to 192.168.200.128:8000- that did not work either.
The exact error I received on starting the sandbox was a warning around zookeeper starting:
“Using config: /etc/zookeeper/conf/zoo.cfg
safemode: Call from sandbox.hortonworks.com/192.168.183.128 to sandbox.hortonworks.com:8020 failed on connection exception: java.net.ConnectionException: Connection refused: For more details see: http://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/Connectionrefused”
Looked at all the posts, and the only thing I haven’t done is changed networking to bridged mode as I am no expert at networking and don’t see below that it specifically solved the problem.
Look forward to anyone else’s thoughts on what might work.
In the meantime, I’m enjoying the command line – it’s why I wanted to install my own instance anyway. Didn’t want to use the browser UI. So it is not holding up my work too much. It’s just annoying.
