Just one useful tip for those who got into trouble starting up centOS image on Vagrant.
When installing in this case “nrel/CentOS-6.5-x86_64″ image on Vagrant I have experienced timeout errors while trying to startup my boxes:
web: Warning: Authentication failure. Retrying…
This was because centOS image requires username and password while loading. Two ssh lines inside Vagrantfile helped me to solve the issue:
# vagrant reload
Then check all your boxes are up:
# vboxmanage list runningvms
And that you can connect to the box using ping command.
# ping 192.168.10.10
PING 192.168.10.10 (192.168.10.10): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 192.168.10.10: icmp_seq=0 ttl=64 time=0.425 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.10.10: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.305 ms
And you’re all set!!
