extend your VirtualBox image size
Category : HDFS
When you first time use your HDP sandbox in VirtualBox then by default it assign 20GB of your harddisk to your sandbox. But later as far as I know this would not be enough size and you want to extend size.Then this article will help you to extend your VBox size.
Step 1: Right click on that Virtual Machine where you would like to extend the size and click on settings and then go to storage.
Step 2: Now you need to click on + symbol near “Controller:Sata” and click on “Create New Disk”.
Step 3: Select “VDI(Virtual Disk Image)” and continue :
Step 4: Select Dynamic Allocation and continue:
Step 5: Select Your size which you would like to extend (e.x 10 GB) and then click on create.
So here you will see following one more sata disk with the name you provided.
Now you have to start the server and login to the shell to perform following steps:
