Vagrant boxes

Generate Vagrant boxes with packer.

Boxes are built and released on Vagrant Cloud for virtualbox and aws.

Debian 8 (jessie):

  • debian-8-amd64-plain: Minimalistic
  • debian-8-amd64-default: With git, rsync, ruby and puppet

Debian 7 (wheezy):

  • debian-7-amd64-plain: Minimalistic
  • debian-7-amd64-default: With git, rsync, ruby and puppet
  • debian-7-amd64-cm: With CM framework dependencies.

Usage: Virtualbox

Example Vagrantfile:

Vagrant.configure('2') do |config| = 'cargomedia/debian-7-amd64-default'

Usage: AWS

Based on official Debian AMIs. Using the HVM EBS flavor as recommended by Amazon. Available regions: eu-west-1, us-east-1.

Example Vagrantfile (using the vagrant AWS provider plugin):

Vagrant.configure('2') do |config| = 'cargomedia/debian-7-amd64-default'

  config.vm.provider :aws do |aws, override|
    override.ssh.username = 'admin' # For ubuntu use 'ubuntu'
    override.ssh.private_key_path = '~/.ssh/<private-key>.pem'

    aws.region = 'eu-west-1'
    aws.instance_type = 'm4.large'
    aws.ami = '' # due to a bug, see
    aws.access_key_id = '<aws-access-key>'
    aws.secret_access_key = '<aws-secret-key>'
    aws.keypair_name = '<keypair-name>'
    aws.security_groups = '<security-group-id>'

    aws.block_device_mapping = [
        'DeviceName' => '/dev/xvda',
        'VirtualName' => 'root',
        'Ebs.VolumeSize' => 100,
        'Ebs.DeleteOnTermination' => true,
        'Ebs.VolumeType' => 'io1',
        'Ebs.Iops' => 2000
