NS_ERROR_FAILURE when running vagrant up

Dear experts
I am trying to start up vagrant in my Mac (macOS Monterrey 12.5) after downloading and installing VirtualBox 6.0.14 and vagrant 2.3.0. When I run ‘vagrant up’, I get the error NS_ERROR_FAILURE. I am stuck at this point. Anybody has been successful with my configuration?

% vagrant plugin install vagrant-vbguest
Installing the 'vagrant-vbguest' plugin. This can take a few minutes...
Installed the plugin 'vagrant-vbguest (0.30.0)'!
% vagrant up

There was an error while executing `VBoxManage`, a CLI used by Vagrant
for controlling VirtualBox. The command and stderr is shown below.

Command: ["hostonlyif", "create"]

Stderr: 0%...

VBoxManage: error: Failed to create the host-only adapter

Hi :wave: @Fabio_Gil1,

Welcome to the MongoDB University forums :sparkles:

Can you confirm the chipset of your macOS? It’s intel or M1?

I suspect it’s M1, then you can refer to this thread.

I hope it helps!
