When using Vagrant on Windows 10 for managing local virtual machine, began to occur an error: Failed to create the host-only adapter. Further on how to fix it.
We have: Windows 10 / Vagrant 1.8.5 / VirtualBox 5.1.2
When run the command
vagrant up occurs error just about the following look:
Command: ["hostonlyif", "create"] Stderr: 0%... Progress state: E_FAIL VBoxManage.exe: error: Failed to create the host-only adapter VBoxManage.exe: error: Code E_FAIL (0x80004005) - Unspecified error (extended info not available) VBoxManage.exe: error: Context: "int __cdecl handleCreate(struct HandlerArg *,int,int *)" at line 66 of file VBoxManageHostonly.cpp
And earlier, on Windows 8 this error was not.
As it turned out, in VirtualBox have already taken care of this and released a special exe-fix, which bring VirtualBox to feelings:
- Yo need go to the next link: https://www.virtualbox.org/attachment/ticket/14040/VBox-Win10-fix-14040.exe.
- On the opened page click to "downloading" link.
- After exe file has been downloaded, run it with an administrator rights.
- Try run the command
vagrant up, must have no errors.
- After those actions you can delete downloaded exe file.
