I have the same problem and I've never used VMWare.

 

Doen VMWare run in a subordinated role (within) VirtualBox ?



No, download VMware-player-6.0.7-2844087.exe, it's free for downloading and using for non-commercial use, and then download  VMWare image(cloudera-quickstart-vm-5.7.0-0-vmware), you could just unintall VirtualBox and then install VMWare Playser, and then boot up the VMWare image within it.

 

Those should clear your doubts.

When I monitor startup, I can see that there are several readonly errors.  I too am unable to get both 5.5 and 5.7 working on the newest version of VirtualBox.

Is the solution to rum VMWare?

  

Is cloudera's position that QuickStartCHD VM 5.7 will not run on VirtualBox?

Hi Steve6c,

The CDH 5.7 Cloudera Quickstart VM (QVM) has been running just fine on my Mac. I also have a number of students running it on non-Mac hardware. All of us are using VirtualBox. In the past I have used the VMware version of the QVM without a problem, too. I am running VirtualBox Version 5.0.14 r105127.

Mine failed on the most recent version of Virtual Box:
Version 5.0.24 r108355.

Perhaps it works with earlier versions like 5.0.14.

VMWare Workstation worked perfectly. If you run into issues, it takes about 5 minutes to download the free version of VMWare and get 5.7 up and running.

Could be, I am upgrading VB to Version 5.0.24 r108355 to test it out. Will let you know what I find.

 

... Okay, I upgraded VirtualBox to 5.0.24, downloaded a fresh QVM zip, and launched it successfully. If you'd like to post more information about what's going wrong, I can try to help.

I have never tried others except VMWare player and Virtual Box, forget about Virtual Box, so far, VMWare is only solution works for me.

 

They have quick start image for Virtual Box, but it just couldn't be boot up on my laptop, that's why I have to try to download another specific image for VMWare and run it in VMWare Player, it works for me.

Hi JohnnyW, I am running the VirtualBox image on my Mac and ThinkPad without a problem. Glad you were able to get the VM working : )

JOhnnyW posted that he could not get VirtualBox to work so he switched to VMWare....


Am I wrong?
