I am trying to delete a file in hortonbox sandbox setup on my vmware workstation player 12 and I am getting continuous error "invalid argument".

rm -rf 1
rm: cannot remove `1': Invalid argument

Right now I am at /var/run/ambari-server/stack-recommendations trying with user root.

Edit: 1 is the directory name I am trying to delete and I had tried it in single and double quote as well. Error does not change.

    And 1 is what, a directory in that directory? – GhostCat Oct 18 '16 at 6:47

    What has "ls -al ./1" to say? – GhostCat Oct 18 '16 at 6:50

    Very strange. Did you try "rm -rf ./1" ? – GhostCat Oct 18 '16 at 7:01

    Well, if it just had helped. I was seriously expecting to see many answers by now. – GhostCat Oct 18 '16 at 11:15

Here is a link to Hortonworks forum thread. That version of the sandbox was broken:

This is due to a docker issue in this 2.5 sandbox build. It will be fixed in next revision of the sandbox.

Updated sandbox available for downloading now at http://hortonworks.com/downloads and everything works fine there
