    How to install VM ware tools on HDP Sandbox

  • Author

    Hi Pal,

    Thanks for using the Hortonworks Sandbox.

    As the Sandox is not a GUI environment the VMware tools cannot be installed. You might be able to install them if you first install X on the sandbox, but this is not recommended.
