To configure my Vagrant virtual machine I use PuPHPet. You need to have VirtualBox installed for this. After downloading the PuPHPet configuration manifest you need to start up the virtual box. You do this by executing this command:
Sometimes I get this error while it’s configuration the virtual machine:
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 HostNetworkInterface, interface IHostNetworkInterface VBoxManage: error: Context: "int handleCreate(HandlerArg*, int, int*)" at line 68 of file VBoxManageHostonly.cpp
To resolve this issue on Mac OS X you use the following command which restarts virtualbox.
sudo /Library/StartupItems/VirtualBox/VirtualBox restart
After that, try “vagrant up” again.
