Hortonworks Sandbox Forum

Want to setup a Multi-Node Cluster with Sandbox.

  • #29755


    I am new to the forums but I cannot find an old topic on this. I am trying to use the Hortonworks Sandbox to setup a multinode cluster eunning multiple VM instances. Is there a document or resource that can guide me on the steps to do this?

    there is no such document, as this is not officially supported…
    However, you can modify configuration files manually.
    Use this document:
    as a reference.

    Hope this helps.
    Thank you!


    Thank you Sasha, yes I understand that the goal of the Sandbox is to keep it simple so it makes sense that is not supported, I appreciate you pointing me to a resource, I will look into it.
