Error executing VBoxManage
With our team production meeting out of the way this morning, I checked my emails and tried to fire up Vagrant to get down to work. As soon as I ran ‘vagrant up’ I go the following error:
There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below. Command: ["hostonlyif", "create"] Stderr: 0%... Progress state: NS_ERROR_FAILURE VBoxManage: error: Failed to create the host-only adapter VBoxManage: error: VBoxNetAdpCtl: Error while adding new interface: failed to open /dev/vboxnetctl: No such file or directory VBoxManage: error: Details: code NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005), component HostNetworkInterfaceWrap, interface IHostNetworkInterface VBoxManage: error: Context: "RTEXITCODE handleCreate(HandlerArg *)" at line 94 of file VBoxManageHostonly.cpp
I’ve had some issues running Vagrant after updating macOS in the past, but thankfully this time around it was an easy fix.
I tried to run VirtualBox and straight discovered that the version I was running wasn’t compatible with Mojave. Once you update to Mojave you’ll need to upgrade to VirtualBox 5.2.13 or higher – I’m now running 5.2.20 without any problems.
