Hortonworks Sandbox Forum

Sandbox won't run twice

    What am I doing wrong. I am running Oracle Virtual Box on WIndows XP. I have tried every type of shut down I know but everytime I try to start the box a second time I get errors and the VB shuts down. I have to import it and start all over again.

    Am I missing something?

    Hi Jason,

    Are you shutting down the Virtual Machine from within VirtualBox using the Machine–>ACPI Shutdown command?

    Jason Fisher

    Yes, I have shut it down that way and tried to save state to pick it back up.
