A new platform for documentation and tutorials is launching soon.
We are migrating Vagrant documentation into HashiCorp Developer, our new developer experience.
vagrant up [name|id]
This command creates and configures guest machines according to your Vagrantfile.
This is the single most important command in Vagrant, since it is how any Vagrant machine is created. Anyone using Vagrant must use this command on a day-to-day basis.
name- Name of machine defined in Vagrantfile
id- Machine id found with
vagrant global-status. Using
idallows you to call
vagrant up idfrom any directory.
--[no-]destroy-on-error- Destroy the newly created machine if a fatal, unexpected error occurs. This will only happen on the first
vagrant up. By default this is set.
--[no-]install-provider- If the requested provider is not installed, Vagrant will attempt to automatically install it if it can. By default this is enabled.
--[no-]parallel- Bring multiple machines up in parallel if the provider supports it. Please consult the provider documentation to see if this feature is supported.
--provider x- Bring the machine up with the given provider. By default this is "virtualbox".
--[no-]provision- Force, or prevent, the provisioners to run.
--provision-with x,y,z- This will only run the given provisioners. For example, if you have a
:chef_soloprovisioner and run
vagrant provision --provision-with shell, only the shell provisioner will be run.
