My workaround to pre-download the images uses wget for the built-in retry w/ resume, and I have not had any reported issues using that process. Ansible uses curl, which is not handling the dropped http connection well, resulting in a broken download. I tried the above link and it works great for me, but so does the artifacts server. Is the buildlogs server also going through nginx?
