Hortonworks Sandbox Forum

Proper shutdown procedure?

  • #18059


    I would like to know what the proper shutdown procedure is for the sandbox. What I would like to do is ssh into it and then call halt. I guess for that I need the password of the user “sandbox” at least (if he is a sudoer) or, preferably, the root account. This, however, is not information which seems to be easy to find. I would appreciate it very much if someone could supply this information.

    Hi, Reinhold,

    I have been trying to stop the shutdown VM by just powering off the VM itself. All the services start up fine once I bring up the VM.

    Also you can ssh to Sandbox as root and its password is hadoop. Also once you login as root, you can change password for sandbox.

    Hope this helps.
