    As I understand HDP is compatible with Amazon and in turn openstack. You might find this guide on installing on amazon useful, process with be different but the concept the same.

    when i access the URL for sandbox and i got a login page where user name and password is mentioned and when i tried to login with the same credential i got following error:

    Error mess:
    “CSRF verification failed. Request aborted.”

    Reason given for failure:
    No CSRF or session cookie.

    please let me know how to avoid this error as its blocking me to access the virtual URL.

    I’m wondering if the Hortonworks Sandbox runs on Ubuntu 12.04? If someone could let me know if this is the right place to post this question I would appreciate it as well.

    Thank you very much.

    on windows 7, I have downloaded Hortonworks Sandbox 1.3 for Oracle Virtualbox
    After I START the machine and I get the IP address
    I paste this into the browser and the message I get is unable to connect to the IP address….


    I tried installing on Windows 8.0. I am using a 8 GB machine with Virtual box installed. I could install the virtual machine and i started the centos…everything was fine .. till the ip address that i got was and i pasted this on the web browser . But the page would no load.. I tried many times but no luck. Any suggestions…



    when i open the virtual machine , its asking the login details (login id and password). If i give my login details (with which i registered here) its not working. Is there any specific login id and password i need to use


    I have Windows & Professional Version 6.1 Build 7601 SP1 using VMWare Player 6.0.0 build-1295980 with HortonWorks VMWare Hortonworks+Sandbox+1.3+VMware+RC6 obtained 9/16/13
    I followed the documentation to use Network-Adapter Host Only – Connect when power on (which was preset and did not require an add hardware)
    It also occurs when using NAT so it is consistent.

    During bootup of vm I see this stream 5 times in console mode – [0-4]
    Using config: /etc/zookeeper/conf/zoo.cfg
    INFO ipc.Client: Retrying connect to server: sandbox/ Already tried [0-4] time(s); retry policy is RetryUpToMaximumCountWithFixedSleep(maxRetries=50, sleepTime=1 SECONDS)
    Then it says safe mode is OFF and proceeds with boot.

    When I plug in into FF the session times out. I’m assuming that this piece means I missed something in configuration?
    That is not the IP of my windows machine and what it resolves to though… so I am wondering where it got the IP?

    Thanks for any help you can lend.


    Hi, I am using the latest available Hortonworks Sandbox. I am facing a small problem while trying to go through the tutorials in it. The videos are not getting played !! Could you please help me with this? I am using the latest version of Chrome.



    I have downloaded the sandbox for hyper-V and able to import the virtual machine.
    However, when start or bootup of the sandbox, it directed me to sandbox login.
    so i login as root. I am not sure why there is no GUI so i can enter the ip address for hadoop.
    please help.




    Hi Victor,
    Can you start a new post on your issue so others within the community can provide feedback? Looking at the requirements, ESXI wasn’t listed as a requirement. I personally haven’t tried it on ESXi infrastructure. Are you able to use the other recommended vm applications such as vmplayer?



    Hi, I am experiencing this error with the OVA file:

    The OVF package requires unsupported hardware.
    Details: Line 28: Unsupported hardware family ‘vmx-09’.

    Perhaps I need a version that is specific to ESXi 5.0? Was this version designed for 5.1? Let me know if you would like an XML file of the error.
