    I have installed sandbox on my ubuntu. The virtual box is up and running and have also got the message like ” please open a browser and enter this address“. I thought the installation is sucessful, but when I opened the ip address on my chromium browser, it says “This page is not available” .

    Please could you help me in resolving the issue as I am very new to this Linux & Bigdata world. And so much interested to take a deep dive into this…

    The configuration Details for reference:

    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS installed using Wubi Installer.
    RAM : 6GB
    Hortonworks Sandbox 1.2 1-21-2012-1 VirtualBox.ova

    Hi Ganesh,
    Port 8888 will take you to the general Sandbox UI where you can find more directions on using the Sandbox. You should be able to access Ambari over port 8080 once enabled. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Ajay and Ian. Both URLs( & were not working (This page is not available).
    My findings listed below:
    After sanbox is imported, My network setting has
    Attached to NAT
    Adapter Type: Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop(82540EM)
    Cable Connected enabled.

    Attached to Host only Adaptor
    Adapter Type: Intel PRO/1000 MT Desktop(82540EM)
    Cable Connected enabled.

    When start the Virtual box, it throws “No host-only network adaptor is currently selected”. Hence I have changed the adaptor 2 to NAT Network with cable connected enabled.
    Have I done anything wrong in terms of settings.

    After changing the default host only to NAT network, Virtual box started to boot, before completion I noticed a status the terminal for ssh as FAILED. Is that what causing all these troubles?

    Thanks for your help in advance.
