    I have seen this issue reported in earlier threads, tried everything that was recommended but could not find the resolution. Hence posting this.

    I am using Oracle VirtualBox 4.3.12, Windows 7, Sandbox 2.1. After a multitude of attempts, I was able to run the virtual image. I also got to the registration form, and when I try to “dive in”:, its just not working. The ping to works but not when I type it in the browser. I have tried it in Firefox 29.0.1, IE 8 and Chrome 35. I have updated network settings as host-only adaptor.

    Can someone please suggest what I should do? Responses are much appreciated.

    Hi Ian,
    Thank you very much for your response, much appreciate it.

    I did ssh into the sandbox and Hue is running. I changed network adaptor settings to ‘Bridged’ and typed this url instead: and it worked. The IP address was what showed up when sandbox started.




    Hi AssortedOrb,
    Can you try the address and see if you can access Ambari? The 8000 port is for Hue, which is an interface that allows you to interact with Hadoop through a GUI. You may want to try and ssh into the sandbox to ensure Hue is running. This can be accomplished with a service hue status, to check the status. You can execute a restart by executing service hue restart. I hope this helps.
