From time to time, users have reported particular issues with Vagrant or VirtualBox in certain environments, and this page shows some common issues and possible fixes/solutions.

Guest additions fail to be detected

From time to time, if you vagrant halt, then vagrant up again, you might get a message like No guest additions were detected on the base box for this VM!, as well as messages about shared folders not working correctly.

There are two ways you can fix this problem:

  1. Make sure you're running the latest box version for Drupal VM. Update by running vagrant box update.
  2. Install the vagrant vbguest plugin: vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest.
