    Dear Hortonworks,
    I’m trying to download the OVB ova-File but fail to succeed as was previsously reported.
    The file content is broken and regularly stopps after 3kb or less.
    After several failures from firefox I’ve tried curl:
    curl –proxy <proxy>
    curl fails with this error message “curl: (18) transfer closed with 2525699108 bytes remaining to read”

    In Hortonworks website the size of Sandbox2 for virtual box mentioned was 2.5 GB, but when downloaded I could see that image size was just above 2GB. When I tried to download the same through the download manager, the download got corrupted, while the size of the download was 2.03 GB. I tried it multiple times, every time the download got corrupted when the downloaded image size was 2.03 GB.

    When I tried to install the downloaded image, I am getting below mentioned error message.

    Failed to import appliance C:\Users\15339\Downloads\Hortonworks+Sandbox+2.0+VirtualBox.ova.

    Could not create the clone medium ‘C:\Users\15339\VirtualBox VMs\Hortonworks Sandbox 2.0\Hortonworks Sandbox 2.0 VirtualBox-disk1.vmdk’.

    VMDK: Compressed image is corrupted ‘C:\Users\15339\Hortonworks Sandbox 2.0 VirtualBox-disk1.vmdk’ (VERR_ZIP_CORRUPTED).

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



    Hi Sandeep,
    What issues are you seeing that lead you to believe it is corrupted. Please copy and paste any error information if available. Thank you.
