hi all
  Im a newbie to this world.  Started my Hadoop Essesntials after mounting Mapr Sandbox on Virtual box.
In lesson 3 there is a few commands for Scoop and when i try the command

echo "use metrics; show tables" | mysql -u mapr -pmapr -h localhost


I get above error.  Please advise how to install MySql.  Why is the downloaded Mapr Sandbox installation file missing this
