Problem importing sandbox image

  • #47254
    Frank Harland

    Het is niet gelukt appliance /Users/CloseSure/VirtualBox VMs/Hortonworks+Sandbox+2.0+VirtualBox.ova te importeren.

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


    I encounter a problem when I import the archive file: Hortonworks+Sandbox+2.0+VirtualBox.ova. I run on a macbook pro with 16 GB of memory with VirtualBox 4.3.

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

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

    I tried to download and install it again with the same result.

    Hi Frank,

    Google Chrome can corrupt the download as it is over 2GB.
    If you use Internet Explorer then you should find that the image is successful.
    Also check here for the md5 checksums:

    Hello Dave, thanks for your very quick response. I used Chromium 64 bit version on the mac, still gave me this problem. Will use alternative browser, or, if you have an url for an ftp download, I could use that.


    Hi Frank,

    I used this link just the other day and imported it successfully on Virtual Box for Mac:
