Horton Works – Assign Static IP to HDP Sandbox V2.X in vSphere 6.X

April 2, 2018

HWX-RGB-full-w-tagline

I downloaded the HDP Sandbox 2.6 and tried to install it in vSphere. After making and breaking the file .ova file and finally deploying it;the machine got up but with network issues. To give your appliance a static IP address you will have to edit the networking scripts and reboot the machine. First of all verify your NIC instance with the following command (ens32 in my case).

ip addr show

01

The scripts can be found in the following location.

cd /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts

02

Evidently a script in my NIC instance name was missing.  I copied the contents of the already provided script (ifcfg-ens33) into a new file in my NIC instance name and modified the parameters to give a static IP to my sandbox instance.

vi ifcfg-ens32

03

BOOTPROTO=static

IPADDR=172.X.X.X.

NETMASK=255.255.255.0

GATEWAY=172.X.X.X

04

Save the file and reboot your appliance.

# reboot

After the reboot; the script assigned the static IP to the NIC instance and the Ambari server was up and running.

Just attended a conference; Microsoft’s Private Cloud which was an extension in regards to the TechEd 2013 event; the  Microsoft’s Premiere Event for IT Professionals & Enterprise Developers held from 3- 6 June 2013 at LA USA based on the new developments in Microsoft’s Private Cloud. So whats new? Well these are the new developments.

– R2 releases for Windows Server 2012 and System Center 2012 instead of going towards service packs.

– Azure comming to SQL as SQL Azure.

– SQL Server 2014 release.

– Concept of Hybrid Cloud was much emphasized. Utilization of services from a private cloud plus reservations in the Public Cloud as well. But then why would I let my datacenter invest in a 2-tier solution; didn’t understood that.

– Windows Intune now avaliable for Pakistan region.

– Full focus in integrating other virtualization platforms rather than sticking to Microsoft centric approach.

– Windows 8.1 release.
