I just upgraded my mac OS from Catalina to Big Sur. My vagrant used to be working normally before and then I encountered this issue. (Vagrant version: 2.2.13)
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 95 of file VBoxManageHostonly.cpp
When I tried to start it manually on the VirtualBox this is the return message:
Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908) Make sure the kernel module has been loaded successfully. where: suplibOsInit what: 3 VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED (-1908) - The support driver is not installed. On linux, open returned ENOENT.
Does anyone have a clue on how to fix this issue?
I had the same issue after updating to Big Sur. I downloaded the latest versions of Vagrant, Virtualbox and VirtualBox Extension Pack. Actually, I don't know if installing the Extension Pack was necessary.
And in the system preferences of MacOS, in Privacy and Security, I had to approve the update from Oracle.
After these steps, I was able to 'vagrant up' again.
I Also just ran into this issue today after updating to Big Sur. Using homebrew to update VirtualBox (v. 6.1.16) and approving in Security & Privacy did not resolve the problem. I had to give VirtualBox Full Disk Access in the
Privacy Tab of Security & Privacy to solve this.
The last comment form the virtualbox forum is what helped me with the last step.
