Failed to create the host-only adapter (Windows 7)

Reported by: Dron007 Owned by:
Component: network/hostif Version: VirtualBox 5.1.6
Keywords: host-only adapter network Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Windows

Description

I cannot create host-only adapter neither with the command

VBoxManage.exe hostonlyif create

nor from UI. I get error:

0%...
Progress state: E_FAIL
VBoxManage.exe: error: Failed to create the host-only adapter
VBoxManage.exe: error: Could not operate the communication channel (VERR_BROKEN_PIPE)
VBoxManage.exe: error: Details: code E_FAIL (0x80004005), component VirtualBoxWrap, interface IVirtualBox
VBoxManage.exe: error: Context: "enum RTEXITCODE __cdecl handleCreate(struct HandlerArg *)" at line 71 of file VBoxManageHostonly.cpp

When I try to do it from UI I get error message with the text:

Failed to create the host network interface.

Could not operate the communication channel (VERR_BROKEN_PIPE).

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: VirtualBoxWrap
Interface: IVirtualBox {0169423f-46b4-cde9-91af-1e9d5b6cd945}

This doesn't allow me to use Docker so it is blocker for me.

It is reproducable with older 5.0.* versions too. I tried to reinstall VirtualBox, install with "-msiparams NETWORKTYPE=NDIS5" parameter, reset driver cache in "windir%\inf\INFCACHE.1" without any result.

After error there is new "Unknown Device" in Windows Device Manager.

Lines added to setupapi.app.log after failure:

Please let me know what information may I provide to help to fix this defect or find some workaround.

OS: Windows 7, 64bit, SP1.

I have Aventail VPN installed but it is inactive when I reproduce the problem.

Almost one month passed and no any response. Is the project dead?

comment:2 Changed 4 years ago by frank

No, it's not. Which you can easily see if you check the other open tickets. We cannot provide more than best-effort.

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by Dron007

Unfortunately the problem still exists in latest 5.1.14 version. Due to it I cannot use Docker and Vagrant. Any chances it will be fixed?
