Download .ova file from Hortonworks. Contains the complete environment of Hadoop. But need some configuration which we will cover shortly. Link

Import .ova file into Virtual Box

Steps :

  • How to import .ova file to Virtual Box, Link

  • How to setup configure Hortonworks environment, Link

  • Based on the configuration experience, will say most of you will come across several show stoppers errors. Because not everyone’s machine is same & have all the pre-requisite needed for the setup. No worries, handful of article & Q&A available in Hortonworks community blog, Link

By end of this steps you should completed the configuration & able to boot-up the Hortontonworks Hadoop environment.
