I was working on something in Vagrant and it bothered me. I am documenting it here because it wasn’t in their install documentation.
On macOS you install Vagrant and if you’re using VMware Fusion you need the
vagrant-utility-client. When I did
vagrant up I got the following error.
both: 1 Vagrant encountered an error while attempting to load the utility service key file. This error can occur if the Vagrant VMware Utility has not yet been installed, or if it was installed incorrectly. If this error persists after running the Vagrant VMware Utility installer again, please contact support at: [email protected] Information about the Vagrant VMware Utility, including installation instruction, can be found here: https://www.vagrantup.com/docs/vmware/vagrant-vmware-utility.html Path: /opt/vagrant-vmware-desktop/certificates/vagrant-utility.client.crt Error: Permission denied @ rb_sysopen - /opt/vagrant-vmware-desktop/certificates/vagrant-utility.client.crt
Permissions. It is always permissions. That’s fine. There is a quick fix here.
sudo chmod -R 777 /opt/vagrant-vmware-desktop
Now I can run
vagrant up and away I go!
