Normalt er min blog på Dansk, men dette indlæg vil være på Engelsk, da publikummet for løsningen på problemet jeg oplevede med Vagrant (http://www.vagrantup.com/) vil være et mere internationalt publikum.
My day job is as a Plone web developer working for a local municipality in Denmark, and all my development takes place on my Mac developing and testing up against a Ubuntu LTS server.
While setting up a new Plone installation within one of my VM’s (I use Vmware Fusion rather than the virtual box – Why? Because I use Vmware fusion when I need to run Windows, so I feel at home in Fusion), I decided to upgrade my Ubuntu VM so it had the latest packages and dist-updates. After I did the apt-get dist-upgrade I couldn’t get Vagrant to complete the up command.
I tried just about everything I could think of, and was about ready to give up on Vmware Fusion, and sftp into the VM and get my data and move it to to a new VirtualBox.
I had tried to install open-vm-tools, no luck, change type of share to nfs. I googled, I IRC’ed and so on.
As a last attempt I decided to uninstall open-vm-tools from the VM, and then reinstall Vmware Tools directly from Vmware Fusion itself.

Where the steps are:
After completing the steps I was again able to complete: vagrant up with shared folders.
