### Optional: Sync VirtualBox Guest Additions
If you keep your development VM for any length of time you may be presented with this message upon starting your VM:
```
==> default: A newer version of the box 'ubuntu/trusty64' is available! You currently
==> default: have version '20190122.1.1'. The latest is version '20190206.0.0'. Run
==> default: `vagrant box update` to update.
```
If you upgrade, then the next time you resume your box you may receive the warning:
```
[default] The guest additions on this VM do not match the install version of
VirtualBox! This may cause things such as forwarded ports, shared
folders, and more to not work properly. If any of those things fail on
this machine, please update the guest additions and repackage the
box.
```
To automatically sync with VirtualBox's Guest Additions at startup (and thus avoid this warning) you can install `vagrant-vbguest` like so:
- `vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest` (in the tools directory on the host machine)
Now, whenever you bring up your VM, it will check the version of the VM's guest additions and automatically bring them up to date whenever this is needed.
