Hi
Do you mean VMware player starts, but the Sandbox image doesn't start? Can you attach a screen shot?
Is it possible that the downloaded file is truncated? What size is it?
Thanks

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

I've just downloaded the MapR big data sandbox (on VirtualBox if it makes any difference) and I'm having problems installing any programs to the VM because the talend user is not in the sudoers list.
I've had a quick Google search for it and gone through the provided cookbook documentation but can't find the root password so that I can add the talend user to the sudoers list (could I also ask that you add the default user plus any other necessary users to the sudoers list for future versions of these?).
Could someone please provide it if possible?
For what it's worth, I'm wanting to install DropBox on the VM because I find it the easiest way to share files between the VM and host while also backing up my work.

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

Hi - I tried the HortonWorks version with VirtualBox but it just blew the memory and crashed. I have a 4GB mac book but the VB settings said 3.4GB needed to run the appliance.
I set the values to DEFAULT - should I have left them alone or do I need more memory?

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

HI -I cannot even get the VirtualBox/HortonWorks appliance running.  Using Activity Manager, I can see memory being exhausted until VBox crashes.

I have the same issue as CDYNES - the appliance DOES NOT LOAD. I have VBox on 4GB macbook with 50GB free disk space and it still blows up???
Does it need 100GB free disk to load the 2nd large VDMK file?

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

Hi,
after going through the systen requirements I think 4GB of memory is not enough to run the Sandbox - I tried and it took just too long to even start up.
Did anyone try to run the Sandbox on AWS? Since I can't afford an upgrade of my machine right now, this might be an alternative (not really for free) to try out Talend Open studio Smiley Happy
Any opinions are highly appriciated.

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

Sandbox is up and running. However when I start the Talend Studio,its asking me for a licence? Where would that be? I first downloaded the sandbox on 13th June 2017 so the trial period hasnt ended yet. Any idea

Employee

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

Hi, please let me know which sandbox file you selected.  The trial license should be imported during initial sandbox build process.  If this didn't happen, please re-import the VM and go through the build process again.  The sandbox build process requires a good internet connection as it pulls multiple docker containers from dockerhub that are necessary for the successful build and execution of the sandbox.  If you are behind a corporate firewall, the firewall could be blocking the container downloads.  Try building the sandbox outside of the firewall.  The license only becomes active once it is successfully imported to the sandbox, so you will get your full 30-day trial.

All usernames and passwords in the sandbox are talend/talend.  If you are trying to run something as root from the terminal, use sudo in front of the command.  The sandbox is built on Ubuntu 16.02.

I had downloaded the VMWAre-Mapr Sandbox ,The cookbook says unzip the downloaded file,But whatever i donwload it is not a zipped file instead it is a .exe file.so when i add in the VM machine,it is nt a supported file.can u pls sugeest me what am i doing wrong?

Employee

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

Hi Sanjana,

 

When you register for a sandbox (i.e. the MapR Sandbox).  You will get a very small exe file as you did...  This is a Download Manager File.  Run it as you would a normal application (double-click to start it).  This will open a small program that will ask you to pick a place to store the sandbox file and will then proceed to download the much larger sandbox file (in the case of the MapR Sandbox, it is a .zip file).

 

Please let me know if you have any further problems.

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

Hi,

  the download manager runs, but gives a message "Unable to load metafile".

Is there any workaround?

Employee

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

"Unable to load Metafile" usually indicates a Proxy or Firewall is preventing the Download Manager from accessing the server hosting the physical sandbox download file (the .ova file).  This is not uncommon when connected to a corporate network - which tend to have much higher network security.

 

Please try to download when connected to a different network (i.e. your home network).  Also, the sandbox build process also needs internet access to pull containers from Dockerhub.  It would be recommended to also start/build the sandbox when not connected behind a Proxy or Firewall.

Hi,
Is there a possibility to open cloudera manager of Sandbox ?
if yes, can you provide me with the url
Best Regards

Employee

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

Cloudera Manager is currently not available in the Talend Big Data Sandbox.  The required resources needed to run Manager make it prohibitive in our Sandbox environment.

Employee

Re: Download Your Free Talend Big Data Sandbox today!

The trial license is embedded in the sandbox and will become active once the sandbox is started the first time - this means if you downloaded the sandbox but did not start the VM right away, you will still have the full advantage of the 30-day trial license upon initial boot-up.
