There could be a multitude of things causing the Quickstart VM to have errors. The first thing I would check based on the error is the laptop specifications and what is allocated to the VM. You can read about the requirements and other tips in our community knowledge article on How to setup Cloudera Quickstart Virtual Machine.

Can you provide some additional information? 

 

  • Descibe the laptop: CPU model and number of cores, amount of RAM and operating system
  • What resources from the laptop were allocated to the VM and which OS did you choose for the VM
  • Describe how you created the VM (manually or importing the appliance)

I'm happy to see that you used the import appliance option as it typically the best way to create the VM. I've been doing some reading on the error over at the VMWare community and see lots of mentions to check that virtualization is enabled in Bios. The error is also attributed to high CPU usage which means another program may be running on your computer that is hogging the CPU. Have you closed all background programs that do not need to be running at the time?

Yes, i have closed unnecessary programs while running VM.

Can you confirm that virtualization is enabled in BIOS? Also how many cores does your processor have as compared to the amount of cores dedicated to the VM?

Yes virtualisation is enabled and have Quad core processor for VM .

Re: problem in cloudera installation.....

OK, if the laptop has a quad core processor, how many of them are dedicated to the VM?
