Couldn't resolve host 'raw.githubusercontent.com'

While taking Hbase tutorial from link: http://hortonworks.com/hadoop-tutorial/introduction-apache-hbase-concepts-apache-phoenix-new-backup-...

and while downloading data file (dataset) using command:

curl -o ~/data.csv https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hortonworks/tutorials/hdp/assets/data.csv

I am getting below error message:

curl: (6) Couldn't resolve host 'raw.githubusercontent.com'

Could someone tell how to proceed ahead

@Pankaj Panjiar

I checked that the hostname is correct and it allows the mentioned csv file download.

The only reason i see there that you might have some N/W issue at your end. Please check from the browser if you can download from the same URL: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hortonworks/tutorials/hdp/assets/data.csv

Please check if you are able to do following? If not then definitely this is related to your N/W setting or the internet access is not allowed from your host.

curl   www.google.com

Or there may be some proxyHost setting on your OS which is restricting some website access.

@Pankaj Panjiar, this looks like a network issue. Can you please restart your VM and retry?

Re: Couldn't resolve host 'raw.githubusercontent.com'

@Pankaj Panjjar

Are you able to ping your base machine. If yes the put the following entry in file:-

vi /etc/resolve.com

nameserver 8.8.8.8

And then try to ping google.com.

I hope this will work for you. 🙂
