Warning! This feature is experimental and may break or change in between releases. Use at your own risk. It currently is not officially supported.
This feature currently requires the experimental flag to be used. To explicitly enable this feature, you can set the experimental flag to:
Please note that
VAGRANT_EXPERIMENTAL is an environment variable. For more
information about this flag visit the Experimental docs page
for more info. Without this flag enabled, any disks defined will not be configured.
For examples of how to use the disk feature with Hyper-V, please refer to the general disk usage guide for more examples.
Most options are used for either creating or attaching a hard disk to your guest. Vagrant supports most options for these operations. You should be able to define the powershell specific argument to a given Hyper-V command in the provider_config hash, and Vagrant should properly pass it along to the command.
To define a provider specific option, please refer to the Disk Options documentation page for more info.
»Note about options defined below
It is possible these options could be out of date or stale. If you happen to see an option that has changed or is missing from this page, please open an issue or pull request on Vagrants GitHub page to correct this.
»New-VHD Supported Options
For more information about each option, please visit the New-VHD Hyper-V documentation.
Note: By default, all Hyper-V disks are defined as a Dynamic virtual hard disk. If you
wish to make the disk a fixed size, you can set the
Fixed option below when creating
a new disk.
BlockSizeBytes(string) - Optional argument, i.e.
Differencing(bool) - If set, the disk will be used to store differencing changes from parent disk (must set
Fixed(bool) - If set, the disk will be a fixed size, not dynamically allocated.
LogicalSectorSizeBytes(int) - Optional argument, must be either
ParentPath(string) - The parent disk path used if a
Differencingdisk is defined
PhysicalSectorSizeBytes(string) - Optional argument, must be either
SourceDisk(int) - Existing disk to use as a source for the new disk
»Add-VMHardDiskDrive Supported Options
For more information about each option, please visit the Add-VMHardDiskDrive Hyper-V documentation
Generally, these options do not need to be set or handled by most users. Only use these options if you are sure you know what you are doing. Vagrant will be able to attach disks for you without these options, but they are available if it is required that you specify a specific location for a disk.
