HDP 2.5 TP Sandbox Virtual Box image not working

Guru

I tried downloading the 2.5 sandbox here:

2.5 Sandbox Download

I keep getting an error and it fails to import.

Any idea where I can get a working version? I am using Google Chrome if that makes a difference.

Thanks,

That, but VirtualBox is smart enough to import even a VMWare image. My opinion is that you downloaded an incomplete file due to your Chrome Download Manager, not capable to resume download in case of temporary connectivity issues. What is the size of your file? It should be around 9.5 GB. Try to use a download manager that is capable to resume download and do a size check at the end. Try folx, that if you are on mac.

Hi @Vasilis Vagias. Looks like you downloaded the vmdk for vmware. Make you download the ova for VirtualBox instead.

That's weird. I didn't second guess the file extension. There was only one option on the site.
