Vagrant Up Error on MacOS High Sierra Version 10.13.6

Hi

I am encountering an error when I run the "vagrant up" command.

Error Msg

No usable default provider could be found for your system.

Vagrant relies on interactions with 3rd party systems, known as
"providers", to provide Vagrant with resources to run development
environments. Examples are VirtualBox, VMware, Hyper-V.

The easiest solution to this message is to install VirtualBox, which
is available for free on all major platforms.

If you believe you already have a provider available, make sure it
is properly installed and configured. You can see more details about
why a particular provider isn't working by forcing usage with
vagrant up --provider=PROVIDER, which should give you a more specific
error message for that particular provider.

Looking for help.

    Vagrant is currently configured to create VirtualBox synced folders with
    the SharedFoldersEnableSymlinksCreate option enabled. If the Vagrant
    guest is not trusted, you may want to disable this option. For more
    information on this option, please refer to the VirtualBox manual:

    https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html#sharedfolders

    This option can be disabled globally with an environment variable:

    VAGRANT_DISABLE_VBOXSYMLINKCREATE=1

    or on a per folder basis within the Vagrantfile:

    Hi @kriba
    Jonathan Levi from HACERA here.

    First question:
    The provider is 'virtualbox' indeed.

    Second question:
    Have you tried to "vagrant destroy" and then to "vagrant up" (that's regarding the "The box you're attempting to add already exists. Remove it before")

    Third question: (in case 2 didn't end up with a successful boot):

    But if you could provide us with some more information/diagnostics, such as your operating system (type and version), the version of vagrant used, etc... it may shed some more light.

    Hard to tell when there is no error message - but let's go for it and dig in.

    Thanks, Jonathan

  • Thanks, Jonathan for the response.

    I tried vagrant destroy and vagrant up.

    Here is the output after I destroyed vagrant.

    Thank you @kriba,

    Interesting. So they report back that "The virtual machine has terminated unexpectedly during startup..." and that's all !? Nice ;-)

    OK, let me see if we can reproduce it. We have some MacOS Sierras here.
    What version of Vagrant are you running?

    Thanks again, Jonathan

  • Vagrant version 2.1.4

  • Sorry, we can't reproduce this. What Virtual box version are you using?

    The only thing we saw with a similar "error" was with an older version of Virtual Box.

    Please let us know and we'll try to replicate your exact set up on Mac.
