Downloaded Hadoop MapR-Sandbox-For-Hadoop-5.1.0-vmware sandbox for Hadoop exercises. When I try to run this Sandbox on VMPlayer, I get an error messages:

  • MapR Services failed to start.
  • ERROR 3: Services did not start within 2 minutes.


Does this mean I just need more memory (I have 8 GB RAM, 1.60 MHz, 64-bit machine. Do I need to upgrade to 16 GB RAM in order for Hadoop to run this sandbox? (Also, the ALT+F2 does not bring about anything.


Thanks very much for any help.
