Problems importing Exasol Community into VirtualBox

Hello,

 

I have just downloaded Exasol Community OVA image and tried to import it into VirtualBox. This ended up with the following error:

 

Failed to import appliance /Users/user/Downloads/Software/Exasol/7.1.8/EXASOL-Single-Node-7.1.8.ova.

Error reading OVA '/Users/user/Downloads/Software/Exasol/7.1.8/EXASOL-Single-Node-7.1.8.ova' (VERR_TAR_ZERO_HEADER).

Result Code:VBOX_E_IPRT_ERROR (0x80BB0005)
Component:ApplianceWrap
Interface:IAppliance {86a98347-7619-41aa-aece-b21ac5c1a7e6}

 

Following are the version details:

OS: macOS 12.2.1 Intel

Exasol: 7.1.8

VirtualBox: 6.1.32

 

Might it be that the OVA image is damaged? When I try to view it in hex mode I see a file full of zeros. Is this how it should be?

 

Regards,

Artashes

Hi Artashes,

apparently we've had an issue with uploading the files that corrupted them as you suspected.

This is now fixed thanks to your reporting. The URL you got for the download is no longer valid, though.

Please apply again for the download with the same form you used before.

Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you so much for bringing the issue to our attention!

Best regards

Uwe
