i have tried reinstalling both virtualbox and vagrant.still the same.
tried the following command . still the same

sudo /sbin/vboxconfig

can someone help me .

You have two machines to provision so try starting them up one by one by specifying the machine:
vagrant up database --provision
vagrant up database

vagrant up infrastructure --provision
vagrant up infrastructure

same issue after runing this command

vagrant up database --provision

What about infrastructure?

Hi @gotam,

Please try the following solution:

  • Enable virtualization in the BIOS.
  • Make sure you have Hyper-V turned off in Windows 10 For Windows 10: Press Windows key. Type “Turn Windows features on or off”Deselect checkbox next to Hyper-V. Select OK. Select Restart now.


i have checked BIOS

intel virtualization technology is enabled

i am using ubuntu 16.04 .

oh! I am really sorry about this. This issue is fairly common in Windows, so I just jumped to this. Point was to enable virtualisation. But if is already enabled, then have to look more.

Let me find some solution.

Hi @gotam,

Found these solutions online. Solution worked for them is reinstalling vagrant box.

Make sure to delete/remove all the files from previous install and then do the reinstallation.


above links didnt help to solve.
I uninstalled virtualbox and various versions of virtualbox [ 5.0,5.1,5.2,6.0 ]
worked fine with 5.2 version. Rest all failed to work.

Working combo
OS : ubuntu 16.04 / centos 7
vagrant : 2.2.6
Virtualbox: 5.2

Probably recent updates for 6.0 might have caused this issue .
