Virtual Box Error

  • #42874

    I tired downloading the Hadoop Sandbox for Windows of size 2.4 GB thrice and none of it completed successfully.All the time the download finished automatically at 2.0 GB itself

    I also tried importing the appliance using Oracle Virtual Box per recommended and got an error said that the compressed image is corrupted [VERR_ZIP_CORRUPTED]. I beleive that the download is causing this issue..any help on the same would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Hi Abisheik,

    I believe we have resolved the issue now. Would you mind downloading again to see if this works for yoU?



    Thanks Cheryle for the quick reply.

    Actually i was using Chrome for the first 3 downloads and all failed after downloading 2 GB, i thought there might be a network issue. Later found out that chrome has a limit of 2 GB.

    I then used firefox and it completed successfully.
