Downloading OBIEE virtual ready machine fails.

I have tried 6 times now to manually download and run the OBIEE Samples , all my attempts have been futile. I have tried using the download manager, I have also tried using google chrome and firefox Mozilla every time I unzip the file using the 7zip software I get an error that says,7zipimageextract.PNG

crc failed (image above) I can actually extract it and see the ova file but once I try to import it into Virtual box I get an error that say the image is corrupt?  can anyone offer any suggestions? I would really appreciate any guidance. I was able to complete this on a windows 7 machine but on my windows 10 machine I have had no luck.

    Hi,

    It's really simple ... your files names are wrong !

    Your files are named SampleApp607p-appliance.zip.001.zip, SampleApp607p-appliance.zip.002.zip etc. instead of their real name which is SampleApp607p-appliance.zip.001, SampleApp607p-appliance.zip.002 etc.

    So rename all the files and give them the right name (the doc coming with the SampleApp on how to deploy it gives you the real names).

    To keep it short your files extensions must be the numbers: 001, 002, 003, 004, 005 and not zip like it's now.

    Also I guess you checked the md5 checksum to make sure your files are all valid, assuming they are, the rename will solve your issue.

    - check the cheksum md5, of your files to see if there is any corrupted file, and put the files in a very short directory, something like C:/SampleApp check that you have the enough space, check the extension of the files,

    unzip 7zip

    Just for the record in case someone else runs into this issue. You can download a md5 checksum tool for windows https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=11533 .  once downloaded read the readme file and run but basically the command is this.

    fciv.exe SampleAppv607p-appliance.zip.001

    it will print an md5 hash code right on the screen compare that to the downloaded md5 hash.
