import appliance fails with E_INVALIDARG (0x80070057)

Host: Windows 10

Appliance: Hadoop HDP Sandbox 2.6.5 https://www.cloudera.com/downloads/hort ... x/hdp.html

Please note I am trying to import v2.6.5, not the latest version. filename is HDP_2.6.5_virtualbox_180626.ova

VirtualBox 6.1.18

Importing installation fails with the GUI and from the CLI. The CLI provides more information:

I have tried to uninstall / reinstall VBox, reboot the system, etc - nothing helps. I have lots of disk space available. I do NOT have disk compression enabled.

The same OVA can be imported just fine into the same VBox version on macOS. So this is not a problem with the OVA, it's a problem with VBox.

Nevermind, the OVA image was corrupted in transfer between Mac and Windows. I've re-downloaded it and now it works.

I wish these error messages were more clear.
