cygwin and ssh issues with the windows-2008R2-serverstandard-amd64 template #620

Just wanted to let you know about a couple of issues I have encountered while created a base box for the windows-2008R2-serverstandard-amd64 template.

First two that I have been able to solve myself:

  1. the ssh guest port was configured as 5985 instead of 22

  2. the script assumes that cygwin-setup.exe exists on the floppy drive

I have attached a pull request to correct both issues.

Then some that I haven't been able to solve but for which a workaround exists:

Have a look at the end of the console output following the 'veewee vbox build' command:

  • net.exe use '\vboxsvr\veewee-validation'
    System error 67 has occurred.

The network name cannot be found.

  • shutdown.exe /r /t 0 /d p:2:4 /c 'Vagrant initial reboot'
    Waiting for ssh login on with user vagrant to sshd on port => 59856 to work, timeout=10000 sec

No idea why error 67 is thrown as all seems fine on the guest. I guess this file share serves for smoke testing because all seems to be installed fine.

And finally the shutdown command doesn't work so the call hangs on the ssh login. Manually rebooting the guest allows the call to continue and finish successfully (the box ... was built succesfully!)

But other than these minor issues I have been very pleased with veewee!

Kind regards,
