The Vagrant VMware providers are used just like any other provider. Please read the general basic usage page for providers.
The value to use for the
--provider flag is
vmware_fusion for VMware
vmware_workstation for VMware Workstation.
The Vagrant VMware provider does not support parallel execution at this time.
--parallel option will have no effect.
To get started, create a new
Vagrantfile that points to a VMware box:
# vagrant init hashicorp/precise64 Vagrant.configure("2") do |config| config.vm.box = "hashicorp/precise64" end
VMware Fusion users should then run:
$ vagrant up --provider vmware_fusion
VMware Workstation users should then run:
$ vagrant up --provider vmware_workstation
This will download and bring up a new VMware Fusion/Workstation virtual machine in Vagrant.
Note: At some point in the future, the providers
will probably be merged into a single
vagrant-vmware plugin. For now,
the Workstation and Fusion codebases are different enough that they
are separate plugins.
