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.

Came across this eBook today and finished it reading almost two times on the go. Its basically a combination of tweets by VMware tech evangelists/experts giving away some very valuable tips and tricks on ESXi, vSphere, clustering, hardware considerations and resource allocation. I surely will start to follow these guide lines for my data-center. Thanks to PernixData; its available as a free download. You can access it here.
