I am attempting to connect Tableau to the HortonWorks Hadoop sandbox as described here:http://hortonworks.com/kb/how-to-connect-tableau-to-hortonworks-sandbox/ Tableau is able to see the virtual server as a data source, and it accurately lists the available Schemas and Tables.
However, when attempting to select any table or preview its data, it displays an error popup that 'An error has occurred while loading the data. No such table [default].[tablename]' where the default is the schema and tablename is the name of the table I'm attempting to view.
Here is what comes back when I run ifconfig from the Terminal window in the VM sandbox. Tableau is connecting to the VM via 192.168.50.128.

The guide states Enter the IP address of the Sandbox VM (typically 192.168.56.101) which is different.
Is this IP difference the source of the issue or is there something else I've overlooked? I'm assuming that since it can see the schema and tables that this wouldn't matter.
