Anyone still unable to download the beta completely from MAP?
It always fails at the 1gb point.
The servers are probably overloaded at the moment. Wait several hours to a day, and try again.
Still? Some people did get their download to complete though.
Everyone stop for 10 minutes while I get it!!!
I swear this download is hosted on a tiny mac mini in their server farm.
Mine is stuck on "Waiting..." and the progress bar on the launchpad icon is grey with no progress.
I changed my DNS back to my ISP default and it worked!!
Currently 60%, fingers crossed
Interesting... I use OpenDNS, could that be a factor?
Could be! I was on google dns
Maybe they are kicking certain connections
Update: back to 40%
if you get error code in MAS then try rebooting the system to clear "MAS" error cache then try re-downloading the Beta from the Purchase tab in MAS..
done that and kept getting errors. Cleared all the caches, deleted several smaller apps from MAS and they were all OK, its only Yosemite thats been giving me problem.
At this point I think it would be easier to torrent it
Nope tried that, didn't work.
Happens on different machines also
Yes. Apple use Akamai, which serves content based on your ISPs DNS servers. Best to use these where you can.
Still can't, the download errors on me randomly and i can't even pause a download, when I resume a download it goes back to 0. I am very frustrated over this
FAILED 3 times and counting!! THEN starts from the beginning all over again!
sigh... purchases download again, start over, etc. What a pathetic download server Apple seems to have. Imagine when the real deal is released!
That is called adding insult to injury. We should expect better from Apple. This is embarrassing really.
which is ironic considering it's free..
Downloaded first time tried, just a few minutes ago.
I tried to reset caches and restarts and all the "solutions" and no luck, but i guess this is just an fail on apple's end. Oh well
Changed my DNS back to ISP and seems to be downloading now...
How do you do that? i mean.. I never mess with DNS stuff so it's probably still the ISP settings.
If you have never changed it, it would default to your ISP... I use Unblock-us so have my DNS set to theirs....
the setting is located in Network Preferences>advance>DNS for the computer
or if you have an airport
greyed out numbers are default auto settings...
right, which means I do have the default ISP setting and shouldn't give me the error I've been dealing, not to mention any other MAS apps download just fine.
This happens every year with Apple's large OS releases. Download issues always.
Finally got it downloaded, but I'm just going to hold it in applications for a while and see how the reports are.
Full download complete... too bad I have to go to work now and no time to play with it...
Still getting constant error codes. Sigh...
I'm curious how much bandwidth Apple has dedicated for this, I excepted to run this 20 mins after release but 12 hrs later, I'm still downloading it.
I just did a test. I tried downloading Mavericks from the App Store and the download went along just fine. So I don't think its a problem on my end, it has something to do with the Yosemite servers.
