I had a problem connecting to a vagrant virtualbox cluster from the host (OS X 10.10.4 Yosemite).
There are three hosts set up as a vagrant private_network, each having an assigned IP in the range 192.168.37.2 – 192.168.37.4
The virtual network I wanted to connect to (vboxnet0) had a status of Up and the hosts were running. I could connect with
vagrant ssh to all of the hosts in the network, but I was unable to ping the virtual host from the host OS.
arp -a showed no entry for the virtual network (vboxnet0):
? (192.168.0.1) at 14:cc:20:4c:37:40 on en0 ifscope [ethernet] ? (192.168.0.100) at b8:e9:37:ec:1c:c4 on en0 ifscope [ethernet] ? (192.168.0.106) at 14:10:9f:de:62:e7 on en0 ifscope permanent [ethernet] ? (192.168.0.255) at ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff on en0 ifscope [ethernet]
vboxmanage list hostonlyifs showed six other virtual networks setup, most with status Down, possibly from other vagrant installations
Running these steps fixed it:
Shutdown all nodes with
Remove all the virtual networks with
vboxmanage hostonlyif remove vboxnet0for every network returned by
vboxmanage list hostonlyifs
vboxmanage hostonlyif create. This recreated the vboxnet0 network which was the only one I was interested in
vboxmanage hostonlyif ipconfig vboxnet0 –ip 192.168.37.1
This seems to reset the state, now I can connect to each of the hosts in the network.
