Import sandbox to virtualbox fail

  • #41299

    Hi there.
    I’m using Macbook pro to try HDP 2.0 using Sandbox but failed.
    ====Error info====
    Failed to import appliance /Users/shijjin/Documents/workspace/HadoopVM/Hortonworks+Sandbox+2.0+Beta+VirtualBox.ovf.
    In ‘xml::XmlError::XmlError(xmlError*)’, ‘/Users/vbox/tinderbox/4.2-mac-rel/src/VBox/Runtime/r3/xml.cpp’ at #123.

    Result Code:
    VBOX_E_FILE_ERROR (0x80BB0004)
    IAppliance {3059cf9e-25c7-4f0b-9fa5-3c42e441670b}
    ====Error info====

    My CPU is 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 which supports virtualization. My OS is 10.8.5. My virtualbox is 4.2.18.
    I really can’t find out the reason. Any help will be appreciated.

    I’ve tried to import into VMWARE and failed again.
    ====ERROR INFO=====
    The import failed because */Hortonworks+Sandbox+2.0+Beta+VMware.ovf did not pass OVF specification conformance or virtual hardware compliance checks.
    ====ERROR INFO=====
    Does this mean my MAC not compatible with Sandbox?

    Can anyone send me MD5 to check with my ovf files?

    I solved this problem by re-downloading the files by using Safari.
    If you have the same situation, try using another browsers besides from Chrome.
