HDP 2 on VirtualBox corrupt

  • #39526

    I’m running into the following issue when trying HDP 2.0 on VitrualBox on MacOSX.

    Failed to import appliance /Users/xxxxxDownloads/HDP/Hortonworks Sandbox 2.0 Beta VirtualBox.ova.

    Could not create the clone medium ‘/Users/xxxxx/VirtualBox VMs/Hortonworks Sandbox 2.0 Beta/Hortonworks Sandbox 2.0 Beta VirtualBox-disk1.vmdk’.

    VMDK: Compressed image is corrupted ‘/Users/xxxxxx/Downloads/HDP/Hortonworks Sandbox 2.0 Beta VirtualBox-disk1.vmdk’ (VERR_ZIP_CORRUPTED).

    Result Code: VBOX_E_FILE_ERROR (0x80BB0004)
    Component: Appliance
    Interface: IAppliance {3059cf9e-25c7-4f0b-9fa5-3c42e441670b}

    untaring the .ova file also complains about the file ending abruptly

    xyz-mbp15:HDP xxxxx$ tar -xvf Hortonworks\ Sandbox\ 2.0\ Beta\ VirtualBox.ova
    x Hortonworks Sandbox 2.0 Beta VirtualBox.ovf
    x Hortonworks Sandbox 2.0 Beta VirtualBox-disk1.vmdk: Truncated tar archive
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors.

    At the very least you should publish the MD5 checksums so we can verify if the downloads are correct.

    Hi Hunk,

    Can you download the HDP 2.0 beta sandbox again?
    The MD5 on my VirtualBox.ova for Sandbox 2.0 Beta is eaa01c1f6ba75ce8dbb3c579460dcdc2

    I would expect that it was corrupted on download – I would advise to use a download manager if you have a slow connection.
    Also some AV programs can corrupt on download too.

    I wanted to install HDP 2.0 beta on Windows 8. From the Downloads, i could see Hadoop 2.0 Beta on Virtual box and Hyper-v. which virtual box or vmware is supported on Windows 8 ?


    Hi Padma,

    I don’t know if it’s supported on Windows 8, but there is a MSI for Virtual Box:
