Hortonworks Sandbox Forum

digest of file Hortonworks-Sandbox-1.3-VMware-disk1.vmdk does not match manifest

  • #31037

    I have downloaded this Hortonworks+Snadbo+1.3+VMware+RC6.ova for my VMware Version 5.0.2 player over 10 times now. Each tine when I try to open the selected file from within VMware – the following message appears at different times for each file – but always appears:
    Failed to open virtual machine: SHA1 digest of file Hortonworks-Sandbox-1.3-VMware-disk1.vmdk does not match manifest.

    I need another location or file format to load. Anyone else seeing this problem?

    This usually means file corruption during download…
    I just try this with VMWare Player on windows, works fine.

    Did you try to use VirtualBox?
    It usually works better than VMWare….

    Thank you!


    It worked after the 12th or 13th download of the file.

    Looks like your internet connection is not very good….
