3.6.3. Troubleshooting Analytics Devstack InstallationΒΆ

In some cases, you see an error when you attempt to create an edX virtual machine (vagrant up). For example:

mount.nfs: mount to NFS server '' failed: timed out, giving up

This error situation arises because Vagrant uses a host-only network in Virtualbox to communicate with your computer. If a network does not exist, one is created on vagrant up. If this network is created with the VPN up, it will not work. You must recreate the network with the VPN down.

To resolve the error, follow these steps.

  1. Stop the VPN.
  2. Type vagrant halt.
  3. Open Virtualbox.
  4. Navigate to Preferences > Network > Host-only Networks and remove the most-recently-created host-only network.
  5. Type vagrant up.
