vagrant package [name|id]
This packages a currently running VirtualBox or Hyper-V environment into a re-usable box. This command can only be used with other providers based on the provider implementation and if the provider supports it.
--base NAME- Instead of packaging a VirtualBox machine that Vagrant manages, this will package a VirtualBox machine that VirtualBox manages.
NAMEshould be the name or UUID of the machine from the VirtualBox GUI. Currently this option is only available for VirtualBox. In a multi-machine environment, the UUID is required. This info can be gathered in two different ways
ls -l ~/VirtualBox\ VMsor
vboxmanage list vms.
--output NAME- The resulting package will be saved as
NAME. By default, it will be saved as
--include x,y,z- Additional files will be packaged with the box. These can be used by a packaged Vagrantfile (documented below) to perform additional tasks.
A common misconception is that the
option will package a Vagrantfile that is used when
is used with this box. This is not the case. Instead, a Vagrantfile
is loaded and read as part of the Vagrant load process when the box is
used. For more information, read about the Vagrantfile load order.
