VirtualBox problem with host-only adapter VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND

Recently I hit the following issue. Im installing Vbox on new machine and in order to configure the connectivity between host and guest os, we need to setup the host-only network and the adapter on the guest-os side.

However, after the vbox machine start I noticed the following error message.

Failed to open/create the internal network ‘HostInterfaceNetworking-VirtualBox Host-Only Ethernet Adapter #2’ (VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND).
Failed to attach the network LUN (VERR_INTNET_FLT_IF_NOT_FOUND).

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: ConsoleWrap
Interface: IConsole {872da645-4a9b-1727-bee2-5585105b9eed}

I was pretty sure that all config was right as I did it on other machine.
To keep story short it appears that network adapter on the host machine is not configured right,
The virtualbox NDIS6 bridged driver in not checked. I guess this happened after the vbox update to newer version

Please make sure that “VirtualBox NDIS6 Bridged driver is set’.
Disable/Enable the virtual network adapter in order to make the changes effective.
