I have downloaded cloudera quickstart Vms 5.12 for virtual box. However when I unzip(using 7-zip) there is no .OVF file. only cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.12.0-0-virtualbox-disk1.vmdk file exist. Why ths is happened. for 5.12 there is no OVF file exist?
I have 64 bit win7, 4GB RAM laptop
When I install through virtual box by selecting that .VMDK file I am getting error duing like below
Failed to open the disk image file C:\Users\USER\Downloads\cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.12.0-0-virtualbox\cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.12.0-0-virtualbox-disk1.vmdk.

Could you please help me to use cloudera quick start vm? Your assistance will be appreciated
I downloaded the virtualbox version of the 5.12 Quickstart VM to double check your results. After unzipping the download the OVF file was present so perhaps you had a corrupted download.
While I have you, I would suggest checking out our community article How to setup Cloudera Quickstart Virtual Machine for instructions on installing the VM as well as common issues people run into.
I hope this helps get you started. :)
