NGC failed to download pretrained model

hello,I have been using tao-toolkit yolov3 training for 1 month, it had no problem till today.

it doesn’t download pretrained model

“!ngc registry model download-version nvidia/tao/pretrained_object_detection:resnet18
–dest $LOCAL_EXPERIMENT_DIR/pretrained_resnet18”

After checking, I can download it successfully.
Please check if there is network issue on your side or something blocking issue. Thanks.

I had similar problem when I tried to download from NGC:

!ngc registry model download-version nvidia/tao/trafficcamnet:pruned_v1.0 --dest $NGC_DIR

Thanks for replying. But this does not solve my problem. I signed up a NVIDIA DLI online course, and I need to run this command inside that controlled environment of that course. The JupyterLab notebook is hosted on Jupyter Server
I tried to email DLI about this issue, no luck so far.

hi, did you find any solution to this? I’m facing the same issue.

Me too , same issue with the command :
/ngccli/ngc registry model download-version nvidia/tao/pretrained_object_detection:resnet18 --dest .

solved by Morganh with wget
but it doesn’t work with CLI

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue any more.
Hence we are closing this topic. If need further support, please open a new one.
Thanks

Could you retry CLI? Actually I cannot reproduce any error.
