Halt

Command: vagrant halt

This command shuts down the running machine Vagrant is managing.

Vagrant will first attempt to gracefully shut down the machine by running the guest OS shutdown mechanism. If this fails, or if the --force flag is specified, Vagrant will effectively just shut off power to the machine.

For linux-based guests, Vagrant uses the shutdown command to gracefully terminate the machine. Due to the varying nature of operating systems, the shutdown command may exist at many different locations in the guest's $PATH. It is the guest machine's responsibility to properly populate the $PATH with directory containing the shutdown command.

Options

  • -f or --force - Do not attempt to gracefully shut down the machine. This effectively pulls the power on the guest machine.
