    Use vagrant to connect to VM

    happy10319

      Hi,

      I have a Windows 2008 VM in Oracle Virtual box (5.2.8).

       

       

      I have installed Vagrant.

      How can I start and connect to my VM using vagrant?

       

      Thank you.

          You'd probably be better off asking on a Vagrant forum.  I had to google 'what is vagrant" to even get an idea of what it is.  And now that I have an Idea, it looks to me like a solution in search of a problem, at least as far as VBox is concerned.  VBox is not intended as an enterprise VM solution.  Rather, it is intended to run on a desktop system.  Why would you need a third party system to manage this?  I have 8 Vbox guests on my workstation and have never felt the need to have some sort of overall management system for them.

            Hi,

            Thank you.

            Why would I need a third party system to manage this?

             

            Running VM with vagrant needs less resources (CP & memory).

            I have 8G RAM on my desktop and it is not comfortable to run my VM it.

            Regards.

              How does running a vm with an additional management tool require less resources than running the same vm without the additional managment tool?

              Why are you "not comfortable" with it?  It either runs with the resources available, or it does not.  I've easily run multiple vm's on an 8G workstation.
