Trying to get this up on Windows for the first time and it is saying Authentication failure... and I can see in the GUI that it is asking for a login. It shouldn't be though, right?

Are there any additional steps needed to setup Windows hosts?

Nothing else should be required for windows desktops—however, I've never tried it from a laptop without admin privileges, so maybe there's a UAC problem with Vagrant and/or VirtualBox?

@kevinquillen - Also, can you get a screenshot or even copy+paste of the output with the failure? Would be helpful to see the context.

This is what I had to do:

  • Delete insecure_private_key in .vagrant.d/
  • Run vagrant ssh-config
  • vagrant halt
  • vagrant up

@kevinquillen - I think we can add a note to the Windows documentation page (so others with the same problem can find a solution) and then I'll mark this fixed. I haven't heard the same thing happening to many others, but I'm sure it will happen again, so thanks for posting the solution!

this happens also in Mac. Removing the insecure key and vagrant up works
