Hi @Azarmong

We recommend you use Vagrant and Virtual Box. The instructions are outlined on “Chapter 0: Introduction & Setup - Lab: Setting Up the Vagrant Environment”.

Setting up a fresh VM using these instructions will also avoid any issues from your previous configuration.

Kindest regards,

vagrant up
Bringing machine ‘mongod-m103’ up with ‘virtualbox’ provider…

while bringing up the vagrant tool, i’m getting the above message, is it normal to happen or any issue is occurring?

Hi @Azarmong

This is normal as the correct operating system image for Ubuntu, specifically the Trusty64 version needs to be downloaded to complete the configuration of your local Vagrant box.

Hope this explains the message.
