You can use a download manager that will take care of such problems and be
able to continue a previous download without restarting if an attempt fails
our is interrupted. I use DownThemAll! for Firefox, but there are many

I know it is very old question, still it is relavant to all new downloaders. Here is solution for windows machines that use VMware


    Search in for Microsoft Download Manager 
    You can add your Operating system also.

click on download.

Step2: install this software, all default options are fine.

Step3:On your desktop, click on the shortcut "Microsoft Download Manager"

Step4: Top right corner click on "New download" button.

Step5: As I already registered, loggedin I am able to get a link for download. Please copy paste this url below.



you can add link of your own choice by start download from cloudera website( choose version, choose Platform from dropdown, click Get it now button. Cancel the download, if you use chrome browser press CTRL + J it will list the recently cancelled download and then copy the link shown therecloudera quickstartvm download.JPGcloudera quickstartvm download.JPG

As I use VMWare I got this link, you may get another link if you chose any other options. So paste this link as new download.

click on Ok button,your download starts.

you can use settings button to increase number of downloads options to 16 if supported.

Wait for download to be completed. As I have 100mbps connection, I need to wait for 8 more minutes as shown belowcloudera quickstartvm download3.JPG

I can not download VM imagens using provided links in this thread.


What happaned to  Cloudera QuickStart VM ?  Are these images still avaliable for download?


How to proceeed.




Re: Unable to download cloudera quickstart vm

Hi @Couts ,


The links earlier in this thread you were trying to use were almost five years old. Time (and technology) marches on. We are in a transition away from the CDH "Quickstarts" and they have not been available for months now, so download links that happen to still be on the web aren't going to work.


Cloudera's current product is  CDP and it is available for evaluation purposes and to enable you to get experience with it. 


If you really must have a VM-based distribution of Hadoop, I strongly recommend you migrate to the HDP Sandbox, which is still available and is more up-to-date than the last available version of the CDH Quickstart VM.
