    Oracle BigDataLite Virtual Appliance confirmation

    Charles_Daringer

      I'm trying to follow the instructions for installing the

      Oracle BigDataLite Virtual Appliance

      Oracle BigDataLite Virtual Machine

       

      I'm running VirtualBox 4.3.6

      7-Zip 9.2

      Running on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 SP1 with AMD FX 8120 with 16 GB (a stock aspire M3450)

      And there seems to be a disconnect in the PDF for the quickdeploy, as if in the rush to create the quick deploy document something was left out, or the process was not tested before posting for download

       

      Specifically: from the PDF

      After all zip files are downloaded, extract them with 7zip.

      In Windows:

      Right-click on file BigDataLite-xxx.zip.001 file and select 7-zip->Extract Here

      The extraction will create the BigDataLite-xxx.ova appliance file.

       

      Well the above is NOT happening

      First the files are named at OTN as

      BigDataLite-2.4.1.001

      BigDataLite-2.4.1.002

      BigDataLite-2.4.1.003

      BigDataLite-2.4.1.004

      BigDataLite-2.4.1.005

      BigDataLite-2.4.1.006

       

      Not as the naming convention in the PDF documentation which is requesting a .zip.001 extension

      Can someone run a confirmation that a ova file can be created?

          Hi,

           

          Extract first file 001 with 7zip to obtain the ova file.

           

          I used these files a few weeks ago for Virtual Developer Day without issues.

            Thanks for replying:

            I'm getting the correct checksum for 4-5-6

             

            What seems to be happening is that I'm getting a bad download

             

            Bad Checksum

            I'm downloading "yet again", even if you did get good files then could you do me the favor of downloading any of the three and confirming the issue?

            Possibly tossing a file in some dropbox app that works?

            I hate asking, but what you got at dev-days on media might not be the same?

            I'll give you a helpful for the response, but honestly I usually don't mess these things up, get to one reston way myself... and believe there is an issue

            But again thanks

             

            BigDataLite-2.4.1.004, BigDataLite-2.4.1.005, BigDataLite-2.4.1.006 were correct

              I use exactly this files on dev day, I search tomorrow at work to confirm.

                I followed the instruction last week and it worked for me. Try use Firefox but not IE to download files. If the .zip extension bothers you, rename the file to remove it.

                Good luck!

                  I'm not seeing the zip extension to the file names Calvin, I have tried extracting both ways:

                   

                  One using Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and firefox and the other using windows 7.

                   

                  I haven't gotten a chance to see the latest results of the downloads, I'll reach out on some other sites to see if somebody is downloading this week, getting the same checksum as I?

                    I'm at a site where I cannot download and perform the checksum, if you could look at any of the three:

                     

                    I saw Calvin post and though the PDF has different file names and extensions when you look at the text file with the checksum values and filenames, next to the download links for the files you see that the naming convention was as the files are being offered as downloads, without a zip extension.  In respect to what both of you are reporting, they might have worked last week, they also now might be different files?

                    There is allot more activity on Link'd in and I have some longer-term contacts, I'll request a confirmation there and report the findings, but there isn't a reason why three are correct and three are not

                      I wanted to say thank-you for both of you who responded, what I had to do was download multiple times to I finally got a good copy, it did seem to work better with Firefox running on Linux, double check the checksum and download again if it isn't correct..  I wish I lived in a Google city with higher bandwidth

                        I'm actually having the same issue today... running on Windows and using IE to download.  Re-trying with Firefox to see if it makes any difference.

                          Just to close out my own comment....

                           

                          My issue turned out to be that I had missed the download of the 6th (and smallest) zip file.  I don't know how this happened - perhaps IE has a limit as to how many downloads it can allow at any time - or maybe I just didn't click the link properly, or whatever...

                           

                          Regardless - as soon as the 6th downloaded file was placed in the same directory as the other 5, my extract of the 001 file progressed successfully.  Hopefully this may help someone else in future facing the same issue.
