Sandbox Deployment and Install Guide HDP v2.6.5

Deploying Hortonworks Sandbox on VMWare

cloud Ready to Get Started?

DOWNLOAD SANDBOX

Introduction

This tutorial walks through the general approach for installing the Hortonworks Sandbox (HDP or HDF) onto VMware on your computer.

Prerequisites

Outline

Import Hortonworks Sandbox

VMWare Workstation

Open VMWare and select Open a Virtual Machine:

vmware-win-open

Browse and select the sandbox image you downloaded and click Open.

Next, you’re given the opportunity to save the virtual machine under a different name and/or location. After changes are made, click Import. You should then see the importing progress dialog:

vmware-win-importing

Once import is complete, you will see the newly imported machine listed.

Select the virtual machine you want to start and click Play virtual machine.

vmware-win-select

When the virtual machine fully boots up, you will see a similar screen as below.

Enter the URL into your browser – you’re ready to begin using the sandbox.

Welcome to the Hortonworks Sandbox!

VMWare Fusion

Open VMWare and navigate to File -> Import… -> Choose File….

vmware-choose

Select the sandbox image you downloaded and click Open, then Continue.

You are given the opportunity to save the virtual machine under a different name/location. If you have no preference in renaming, you can just leave the default name and click Save. You should then see the importing progress dialog:

vmware_import_progress

Once finished, the following screen is displayed:

vmware_finish

Click Finish to start your new virtual machine.

When the virtual machine fully boots up, you will see a similar screen as below.

Enter the URL into your browser – you’re ready to begin using the sandbox.

Enable Connected Data Architecture (CDA) – Advanced Topic

Prerequisite:

  • A computer with minimum 12 GB of RAM to spare
  • Have already deployed the latest HDP/HDF sandbox
  • Update virtual machine settings to minimum 12 GB (12288 MB)

Hortonworks Connected Data Architecture (CDA) allows you to play with both data-in-motion (HDF) and data-at-rest (HDP) sandboxes simultaneously.

HDF (Data-In-Motion)

Data-In-Motion is the idea where data is being ingested from all sorts of different devices into a flow or stream. While the data is moving throughout this flow, components or as NiFi calls them “processors” are performing actions on the data to modify, transform, aggregate and route it. Data-In-Motion covers a lot of the preprocessing stage in building a Big Data Application. For instance, data preprocessing is where Data Engineers work with the raw data to format it into a better schema, so Data Scientists can focus on analyzing and visualizing the data.

HDP (Data-At-Rest)

Data-At-Rest is the idea where data is not moving and is stored in a database or robust datastore across a distributed data storage such as Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS). Instead of sending the data to the queries, the queries are being sent to the data to find meaningful insights. At this stage data, data processing and analysis occurs in building a Big Data Application.

Update Virtual Machine Memory

Make sure the virtual machine is shutdown before modifying configurations. Right-click on virtual machine and select Settings….

vmware-settings

Select Processors & Memory and modify memory accordingly. Restart virtual machine.

vmware-memory-settings

Run Script to Enable CDA

The sandbox comes prepackaged with the script needed to enable CDA. Assuming you have already deployed the HDP sandbox, you need to SSH into Sandbox VM using password hadoop:

  • Issue command: ssh root@sandbox-hdp.hortonworks.com -p 22

Note: if you originally deployed HDF sandbox, replace sandbox-hdp with sandbox-hdf in the ssh command above.

  • Run bash script:
cd /sandbox/deploy-scripts/
sh enable-vm-cda.sh

The script output will be similar to:

enable-vm-cda-output
