    You need to have space after .tar.xa file like wget https://training.linuxfoundation.org/cm/LFD259/LFD259_V2021-01-26_SOLUTIONS.tar.xz --user=xxxxxx --password=xxxxx

    Hi @jainsiddhanth and @reti,

    Please be considerate when posting user id and password information on a public forum such as this one.

    If you pay close attention to the "Download" text box, it includes a note, warning you about a possible issue when copying and pasting the wget and the tar commands:

    Note: depending on your software, if you are cutting and pasting the above instructions, the underscores may disappear and be replaced by spaces, so you may have to edit the command line by hand!

    @arvindssharma If you cannot access the resource files using the command in the course (after making sure that the command is correct correct in your terminal; copy/paste from the pdf may cause issues, or introduce unwanted characters), you can always manually download them following the instructions in the Course Resources page in the introductory chapter.

  • Hello fcioanca, problem is that when i click on "Lessons" in the portal, i can only see the exam, i cant see any course Resources.

    Hi @arvindssharma ,

    Your screenshot shows you signed up for the CKA exam. This is not a screenshot from LFD259 (you are posting in the LFD259 forum), nor from LFS258 (which is the prep course for CKA). If you are also enrolled in a training course, please access the course from the training portal and check out the course materials available.
