Am I wrong?

That's right, I could not get VirtualBox to work on my laptop so I had to switch to VMWare.

I wanted to see responses before I switch from VirtualBox to a VMWare, new product for me - with all the joy of new installation plus I suppose I'll have to bring over all of my VirtualBox programs also?

I assume you installed multiple VMs in VirtualBox, in that case, keeping your existing VMs with Virtual Box, and just install VMWare player for booting up QuickStartCHD, there should be no conflict between Virtual Box and VMWare, they could coexist.in your machine.

Thanks:

 

I'm researching VMWare right now.

 

Does VMWare "under" or subordinate to Windows 10 - as does virtualbox?

 

or does Windows10 run as a virtual OS under VMWare?

 

It's too bad I have to go through this

The one (VMware-player-6.0.7-2844087.exe) I mentioned in previous post was intalled on Windows 7 Enterprise, you could try it out on Windows 10, I am not sure whehter it could be installed on windows 10 ornot.

Like @Sue, I just finished setting up of the Quickstart VM to see if I would run into the same issue. In my case I am using a Macbook Pro running OS X El Capitan. I mostly followed the How to setup Cloudera Quickstart Virtual Machine article to make sure I made no mistakes. I downloaded the newest version of VirtualBox 5.0.24 r108355 and the newest Quickstart VM (CDH 5.7) for VirtualBox from the Cloudera Website. In my case I did deviate from the artical's tip to use a download manager and instead downloaded using the Chrome browser only. Since I have a pretty quick Internet connection the download took less than 10 minutes. I unzipped the file with OS X's Archive utility and then opened Virtualbox. 

 

Once VirtualBox was open I again followed the article instructions and used the “File -> Import Appliance” menu inside VirtualBox to open the downloaded *.ovf file. I chose to use the default settings rather than using expert mode and after the setup was complete I booted the VM. After a few minutes I was greeted with the Welcome screen in the VM without any issues.

If you have already checked the common issues lin the article, I think the problem is going to be one of two things. There could be an issue with VirtualBox on your machine which I would suggest checking their forums to see if they have any suggestions. The other option is a corrupted download which can be resolved by downloading the Quickstart VM again.

Kudos cjervis.

 

Once VirtualBox was open I again followed the article instructions and used the “File -> Import Appliance” menu inside VirtualBox to open the downloaded *.ovf file.

 

II was not using the import appliance but was instead creating a new vm and then pointing to the vmdk file.

 

Thanks!

Great to hear you both have gotten over the speedbump here. Best of luck with the Quickstart VM. :)

JOhnnyW:

 

I downloaded VMPlayer that you recommended then the Cloudera for VMWare.

 

It came right up and initially looks OK.

 

Thanks
