Vagrant error: failed to open /dev/vboxnetctl: No such file or directory

I haven’t used vagrant + virtualbox for a while and an error shows up when I tried to reuse.

I have googling about it and I found solution.

sudo /Library/StartupItems/VirtualBox/VirtualBox restart

But I got different error when I tried this.

sudo: /Library/StartupItems/VirtualBox/VirtualBox: command not found

And I have checked vagrant version.

vagrant version
Installed Version: 1.9.1
Latest Version: 2.2.3

I found my vagrant version is quite old. So I have downloaded new vagrant file and reinstalled. You can download updated version from

Also I have upgraded Virtualbox as well.

Then Vagrant start working as before.

$ vagrant up

It’s always good to have things are updated.
