This is a CloudFoundry specific error. Please file an issue on cf-release repo.

bosh ssh times out connecting to VMs

Starting interactive shell on job public_haproxy_z1/0
ssh: connect to host port 22: Connection timed out

This error happens when 10.244.x.x IP addresses are not accessbile from your machine. Confirm that you can ping If it's not pingable make sure to run bin/add-route from bosh-lite directory to set up proper routing to 10.244.x.x IPs.

Related issue:

None of the deployed components are accessible after reboot

See bosh cck documentation for restoring deployments after VM reboot.

Inaccessible Director

$ bosh target lite
[WARNING] cannot access director, trying 4 more times...
[WARNING] cannot access director, trying 3 more times...
[WARNING] cannot access director, trying 2 more times...
[WARNING] cannot access director, trying 1 more times...
cannot access director (execution expired)

Make sure that is pingable. If it's not pingable, it is most likely that your VirtualBox installation did not properly set up networking. Rebooting the machine that runs VirtualBox typically resolves this problem.

Network already acquired

Error 100: Creating VM with agent ID 'cfd86507-0dec-417f-b19f-5d87806bf783': Creating container: network already acquired:

This error happens when VMs (really containers) managed by Garden are left around from a previous deploy. Typically this is due using --force flag on bosh delete deployment command. Easiest way to resolve this problem is to run vagrant reload which will restart the bosh-lite VM and clear up any state.

Customization command failed

A customization command failed:
["modifyvm", :id, "--paravirtprovider", "minimal"]

Please upgrade to VirtualBox 5+. We are now using 'paravirtprovider=minimal' mode to avoid kernel CPU lockups.

"An error occurred while downloading the remote file. The error message, if any, is reproduced below. Please fix this error and try again."

There is an issue (discussed here and here) with Vagrant permissions running on OS X Mavericks 10.9.2+ (after applying Apple's Security Update 2014-002). To diagnose, run vagrant up --debug and see if there is an error mentioning Symbol not found: _iconv. To resolve try one of the following:

1. Upgrade Vagrant to the latest version
2. Purge Vagrant, purge ~/.vagrant.d, and reinstall Vagrant
3. Removing code block as described [here](

"The guest machine entered an invalid state"

$ vagrant up

The guest machine entered an invalid state while waiting for it
to boot. Valid states are 'starting, running'. The machine is in the
'poweroff' state. Please verify everything is configured
properly and try again.

If the provider you're using has a GUI that comes with it,
it is often helpful to open that and watch the machine, since the
GUI often has more helpful error messages than Vagrant can retrieve.
For example, if you're using VirtualBox, run vagrant up while the
VirtualBox GUI is open.

This typically means that your VirtualBox installation is not configured properly. Before trying bosh-lite box, please verify that you can use Vagrant with a default box for Ubuntu.
